Black Women have been on the front lines protecting not just ourselves, our families, and our communities.  Black women delivered in a historic presidential election and are now being called on to protect our democracy.  These are battles that are not without casualties.  However, there is a much greater battle raging in this country, it is a battle against disinformation that is resulting in the loss of our lives.

Register for this real conversation with Black Women Leaders, Healers, Activists, Experts, and Change Makers.  Our Voices Matter!  Your Voices Matter!
