Join us Wednesday, February 20th as we host our 6th LegisalateTHIS Statewide Day of Action! This year’s theme is Women of Color Reclaiming & Rebuilding the South and who better to speak to this than two fierce Southern visionaries, Deon Haywood and Moya Bailey.
Deon Haywood serves as the Executive Director of Women with a Vision, a community-based grassroots organization in New Orleans created by Black women dedicated to providing HIV/AIDS, substance use prevention services, harm reduction, health promotion, and advocacy to address risk behaviors and social vulnerabilities. The organization was the target of arson in May 2012 and have worked to find a new space and replenish their resources while continuing to be a vital source of support for the community.
Moya Bailey is a graduate student at Emory University and blogger for the Crunk Feminist Collective. She is also the founder and co-conspirator of Quirky Black Girls, a network for strange and different black girls.
We’ll be sharing more information about these two amazing individuals as the date approaches.
Under this year’s theme, we will continue to utilize our power to push our legislators to take action. We need your support to seek justice for the many who have suffered under the inhumane practice of restrained childbirth and to seek dignity and wellness for all Georgia families!
So mark your calendars and we look forward to seeing you on February 20th!
Breakfast will be provided. Parking is available in the Government Center Parking Deck to the southwest of the church building. Accessibility details will be posted on our website as the date approaches.
