POWER FOWARD

BWW's Annual Reproductive Justice Conference

CONFERENCE SUMMARY

Each year Black Women for Wellness (BWW) hosts an annual conference to provide a space for Black and African American women to have open conversations and dialogue surrounding reproductive justice, which is simply the right to live the life that we choose, with well-being in all areas of our lives and the ability to define that for ourselves. Attendees leave empowered and better equipped to educate and mobilize their communities on important issues connected to our health and well-being.

This year’s theme is POWER FORWARD. Black women’s health is currently being impacted and controlled by elected officials, many of whom do not consider the Black women’s agenda. We have witnessed time and time again policies and programs that directly go against reproductive health, rights, and justice. On top of this, with the current political landscape, many of us have been fighting hard to protect the important strides we have made in this field. Our power does not only stem from our shared history and struggle; we also have voting power - we are consistently the largest group to show up to the polls and are the backbone of progressive politics.

POWER FORWARD will strategize and mobilize, build on our knowledge and analysis of the state of our communities, and highlight actions that we are taking through education, research, policy and voting to build our collective power. This Power will move us Forward and focus our efforts on protecting our reproductive rights through demanding reproductive justice and holding our elected officials accountable to do the same.
