Black Women for Wellness

STATEMENT ON SCOTUS ROE V WADE DECISION

Black Women for Wellness is sad though not at all surprised by the ruling today. In real time we see a country that has more protections for guns than it does our children, that refuses to dig deep to address racism, that has rolled back the rights of birthing folks, that is killing our planet and ignoring the working and poor people of this country, we are not defeated.

Our work is long-term, it is big and it is bold, and so is our determination.

The need for abortion does not disappear when access to abortion is denied, it goes underground. Safe and affordable abortion for working class and poor women will become much more difficult.

Black Women for Wellness / Black Women for Wellness Action Project is working with partners, allies and our state California to provide a safe space for those in need of abortion services. BWW knows that abortion is a basic human right, it affords people who can become pregnant the dignity of bodily autonomy.

Black Women for Wellness is a 22 year old organization - Grown and sexy! We're keeping an ear to the ground via our many programs such as [email protected] (our community meeting held once a month sharing hot topics and local news), Kitchen Divas (Our weekly classes on healthy cooking and living), focus groups, listening sessions, and also being a community resource and catalyst. Here is Janette Robinson Flint sharing her insights as the Executive Director and founder of Black Women for Wellness.

Though Black women raise the bar with our work, less than .06 % of giving goes to women - not just Black women, women's organizations - YOU can help change that by giving to Black Women for Wellness or another women's organization - we fight hard for health and well being, social justice, civil rights and when we win - we all win - so your dollars count here in a meaningful way.

PS Do Share - share our post, our links, our work with your friends, colleagues, social media stalkers (you know those folks who never say anything but like you or lurk on your page), associates, moneyed friends, family and yes even those folks who may have disappeared for quite a while from your feed.
