Violence against women - especially Black women and women of color, girls and femmes - is a grave violation of civil and human rights. For 2018 Valentine's Day, we want the candy, flowers AND our rights to live free from violence at home, at work and in all aspects of society. Let's send a strong message that it stops now.
From before the bus when Rosa Parks was a sexual assault investigator to Tarana Burke, founder of the #MeToo Movement, these women among countless other disrupters have paved the way to address gender politics in our fight for justice and liberation. When you uplift women, you uplift the entire nation.
