#SayHerName A Vigil In Remembrance Of Black Women And Girls Killed By Police

SayHerName Vigil

Although Black women are killed, raped and beaten by the police, their experiences are rarely foregrounded in our popular understanding of racialized state violence.

A Vigil In Remembrance of Black Women And Girls Killed By The Police
Wednesday, May 20 5:30pm Union Square South

If the loss of their lives matters;
If the grief of their families matters;
If the impunity with which all Black lives can be taken matters;
Then we cannot allow these tragedies to remain unmarked, silenced and forgotten.

This vigil is being held the evening prior to May 21st, a national day of action to end state violence against Black women called by BYP100.

Women’s Court: Feminist Approach to Justice Hosted in Sarajevo

Women's Court

"In Sarajevo, women activists from countries of the former Yugoslavia held a Women's Court - feminist approach to justice - for survivors of war and post-war violence. Witnesses spoke out about their experiences, advocated for justice and peace, judicial reform to protect survivors, and built stronger feminist networks in the region." One Billion Rising Global Coordinator Rada Boric shares her recent experience co-organizing a revolutionary Women’s Court for war crimes committed against women during the wars in the region throughout the 1990's.
