Say "NO" to the Racist Billboards Targeting Black Women

Black Women for Reproductive Justice has organized a speak out this Thursday, June 9th, in response to the anti-choice billboards that have gone up recently in black communities on Chicago's south and west sides.  The billboards are a horrendous attempt to shame black women and we will be joining BWRJ and a number of other organizations in taking a stand against these offensive attacks.

Join us at the June 9th Speak Out!  Become a part of ongoing efforts to highlight some of the real issues impacting the lives of Black women and the entire African American community.  Call BWRJ at 773-955-2709 or email no2billboards@bwrj.org to find out more information.
