...and I said to myself there wasn't going to be another march for racial justice that did not
truly center the needs of Black women". -Farah Tanis
Why We Marched:
September 30, 2017, Black women converged at the center of the March for Racial Justice in our very own MARCH FOR BLACK WOMEN in Washington, D.C. to denounce the propagation of state-violence and the widespread incarceration of Black women and girls, rape and all sexualized violence, the murders and brutalization of transwomen and the disappearances of our girls from our streets, our schools and our homes.
