I am my sister’s keeper.
College women are growing into powerful advocates and leaders through My Sister’s Keeper.
The program provides young women resources and tools to:
- Elevate the conversation about sexual health and domestic violence
- Advocate for policies that keep women safe
- Mobilize women around reproductive rights
On April 10th, BWHI hosted a panel discussion and video screening on the issues around reproductive justice and their impact on Black women. Our panel of reproductive justice advocates, award-winning filmmaker and director Jami Ramberan, and young visual storytellers shared insights into creating awareness through their work around reproductive justice.
BWHI hosted our first MSK National Policy Summit October 23-25, 2017, during which we brought 42 students and their faculty advisors from around the country to Washington, DC. The students were given the chance to participate in a policy conference and visit Capitol Hill where they discussed the importance of reproductive health services, including contraceptives, with their state representatives.
