What can I say about my conversation with Monica Simpson? It was so moving it brought me to tears.
Monica Simpson is the Executive Director of the Sister Song, the Women of ColorReproductive Justice Collective. We had a wonderful conversation about Black women and the reproductive justice movement, a perfect conversation since we just celebrated the 25 years since its creation.
Sister Song is a collective focusing on women of color reproductive justice. It is based out of Atlanta, Georgia.
SisterSong’s mission is to strengthen and amplify the collective voices of indigenous women and women of color to achieve reproductive justice by eradicating reproductive oppression and securing human rights. Learn more about their work here.

Women of African Descent for Reproductive Justice issued a statement via full page ad in the Washington Post 25 years ago emphasizing that,”Reproductive freedom is a life and death issue for many Black women and deserves as much recognition as any other freedom.” This is just as true today and a continued call to action.
