In support of #BlackHERstory Month, we’ll be posting about one current black feminist leader or organization each weekday in February. Tune in daily to learn more about black women’s history, feminism, and the reproductive justice movement!
The Black Women’s Blueprint provides the personal and political spaces as well as the resources needed for women to engage in intersectional advocacy at the grassroots and societal levels. The organization’s largest initiative is its Truth Commission, developed to address sexual violence.
The Black Women’s Blueprint co-founder and Executive Director, Farah Tanis, is a transnational black feminist and human rights activist. Tanis, a 2012 U.S. Human Rights Institute Fellow, also founded the Museum of Women’s Resistance and Mother Tongue Monologues. Tanis’ work focuses on human rights policy advocacy and organizing for black women in the U.S. and Caribbean.
