SisterSong NYC, a collective of women of color activists who have committed to advocating for women of color and reproductive justice, has sent out a call for interviews for their video blog project: Sisters, Loud and Proud. Please see their call for participants below:
“Sisters, Loud and Proud is a video blog project that is being produced through a collaboration with SisterSong NYC and Planned Parenthood Federation. The recent attacks on African American and Latina women is deplorable and has tried to use our bodies and dignity to position us as victims. This project will capture the stories of local young African American and Latina women and our allies to discuss what we have been doing for ourselves to preserve and protect our dignity and reproductive freedom in the face of these attacks, in addition to the impact and importance of Planned Parenthood in our personal lives and advocacy.
The fierce activism present in New York City has established itself as leader in successful local and national movements for women of color and reproductive justice. We want to capture the faces and the stories behind this work to show that it’s not always the big names and recognizable faces that create movement, but it’s the everyday woman who is fighting for respect and dignity for her life and community.”
