MY SISTER’S KEEPER CHALLENGE
Help unite Women in Vermont Against Racism! Contact: Ebony Nyoni
Black Lives Matter VT is hosting the second part of a three part conference series to study the plight of women of color, educate white allies, and mobilize against racism. This is in direct response to the “what next” question many women have as a result of the national Women’s March.
Why: The reality of Women of color is loud, clear, and startling. We all must learn and realize the harsh, painstaking oppression that Black Women (especially) face on a daily basis.
Black Lives Matter VT is a growing network of individuals, families and businesses invested in the liberation of Black Vermonters, and the deactivation of systemic racism endured by Black and Brown residents of our state. Black Lives Matter VT is an official non-profit organization recognized by the state of VT.
We envision… A new liberation movement focused on the preservation of Black lives.
We envision… A Vermont where the laws and policies of the land no longer work towards oppressing marginalized people of color communities, but instead put to action “people centered,” “oppression-free,” mechanisms designed to uplift, nurture and protect all people.
We envision… A Vermont that recognizes the unique plights of communities of color in every public faction. This includes but not limited to: Leadership in local and State Government, Employment, Criminal Justice System, Public Education System, Healthcare System, Public Housing, black Economy, and Department of Children and Families.
