A Mother’s Right to Parent Her Children

“SisterSong Women of Color Reproductive Justice Collective amplifies and strengthens the collective voices of Indigenous women and women of color to ensure reproductive justice through securing human rights.”

Sister Song will be holding an online event THIS Wednesday, May 22nd at 1pm-3pm ET.  They will discuss the story of Sheryl, a mother fighting for her parental rights. Connect with them on Facebook, and their website, for details and to receive the link for the livestream. They will “amplify the story of Sheryl, a mother whose three children were taken from her fifteen months ago, who now faces what she believes is discrimination as she battles for her parental rights. [They] will address the intersectionality of the Reproductive Justice and Human Rights frameworks to help clarify the elements impacting this powerful and compelling story of a mother who loves and misses her children. [They] will explore the environmental and health factors on the development of our children’s bodies, the historically racialized and class-based inequalities present in social systems and decision-making that criminalizes and disregards the individual, and the accountability practices necessary to prevent these cases” 

They will also Tweet Chat #amothersright from 1pm-3pm ET to answer questions and stay connected during the symposium – Join them… Twitter: @SisterSong_WOC
