Black Women Matter

Say Her Name.

“A movement that calls attention to police violence against Black women, girls and femmes, and demands that their stories be integrated into calls for justice, policy responses to police violence, and media representations of police brutality.”

We are more than hashtags. We are more than a footnote at the bottom of a page. Our stories must be heard. I created this page to share stories, news, and important information about Black women because #BlackWomenMatterToo.
