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!

Ms. Mitchell has over twenty years of experience in combining information and communication technologies with policy, advocacy, and education to empower underserved communities.
