Ensuring the Voices of Women of Color Are Heard
Intersections of Our Lives is a Reproductive Justice collaborative of National Asian Pacific American Women’s Forum (NAPAWF), In Our Own Voice: National Black Women’s Reproductive Justice Agenda (In Our Own Voice), and National Latina Institute for Reproductive Justice (Latina Institute), three women-of-color led national Reproductive Justice organizations with both federal and statewide presence.
Women of Color Voters Are Demanding Equity and Change
Intersections of Our Lives released new, national polling data demonstrating the intersectionality of the experiences of Black, Latina/x, Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) women voters. This new research explores the experiences of women of color voters as they went to the polls in 2020, the impact the pandemic and racism has had on their lives, as well as their policy priorities.
Women of color are demanding equity and change through an electorate that reflects them with more women and candidates of color running for office and a more intersectional approach to the issues that matter most to them, including access to reproductive health, ending racial discrimination, ensuring access to clean water, and improving healthcare.
