The African American Policy Forum says
Please join the African American Policy Forum, the National Organization for Women, the Institute of Women and Ethnic Studies, Women with A Vision, Gulf Coast Center for Law & Policy, and Project South for a Town Hall Hearing on the challenges facing women of color.

WHY ARE WOMEN OF COLOR….

DISCONNECTED from family & community?

CRIMINALIZED and INCARCERATED
disproportionately for subjective, non-violent
infractions?

HARMED by trauma, malnutrition, housing
discrimination, and a lack of access to services?

INVISIBILIZED in the narrative surrounding
the school-to-prison pipeline and state violence?

It's time to break the silence! Join us Thursday June 18th at 3PM at the Hyatt Regency, as part of the National NOW Conference (http://now.org/about/conference/), as women share their stories of criminalization and mass incarceration, economic marginalization and housing discrimination, public and private violence, and post-Katrina recovery.
