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 SisterSong Women of Color Reproductive Justice Collective is a coalition of local and national grassroots organizations representing indigenous women and women of color across the United States.
Led by Executive Director Monica Simpson, SisterSong educates women of color on reproductive and sexual health and rights, empowering them to seek reproductive justice in healthcare access and resources. Monica came to SisterSong in 2010 with a great amount of activism and organizational experience. She is a founder for Charlotte, North Carolina’s first Black Gay Pride Celebration, as well as Charlotte’s African American Giving Circle. Monica uses her talents of song and spoken word as platforms of activism for women of color and has performed in several theatrical productions in Atlanta, Georgia, where SisterSong is based.
