“Oppressed people cannot remain oppressed forever. The yearning for freedom eventually manifests itself.” – Martin Luther King, Jr.⁠

@advancementproject is a next-generation, multi-racial civil rights organization. Rooted in the great human rights struggles for equality and justice, they exist to fulfill America’s promise of a caring, inclusive, and just democracy by using innovative tools and strategies to strengthen social movements and achieve high impact policy change.⁠

We believe in the collective power of women to empower communities. ⁠

@essie4justice is a nonprofit organization of women with incarcerated loved ones taking on the rampant injustices created by mass incarceration. They focus on bringing women together to heal, build collective power, and drive social change. They are building a membership of fierce advocates for race and gender justice — including Black and Latinx women, formerly and currently incarcerated women, transgender women, and gender non-conforming people.⁠

“There’s something very important about films about black women and girls being made by black women. It’s a different perspective. It is a reflection as opposed to an interpretation, and I think we get a lot of interpretations about the lives of women that are not coming from women.” - Ava DuVernay⁠

@arraynow is an independent distribution company launched by award-winning filmmaker @Ava in 2010. Their work is dedicated to the amplification of independent films by people of color and women filmmakers globally. ⁠

At ARRAY, they work to elevate people of color and women of all kinds as filmmakers and craftspeople; expand narratives so that people from different walks of life are to see themselves reflected in one another; inspire future generations of talented storytellers and laborers to pursue a career in film; and ensure that the way underrepresented talent is hired and managed throughout the entertainment industry is transformed forever.⁠

We are inspired by their commitment to create change in diversity, equity, and inclusion.⁠

“Justice for her. Justice for all.”⁠

For more than 40 years @nationalwomenslawcenter has been fighting for women and families.⁠

The National Women’s Law Center fights for gender justice — in the courts, in public policy, and in our society — working across the issues that are central to the lives of women and girls. They use the law in all its forms to change culture and drive solutions to the gender inequity that shapes our society and break down the barriers that harm all of us — especially those who face multiple forms of discrimination, including women of color, LGBTQ people, and low-income women and families. ⁠

For the rest of the week, we will continue to highlight organizations at the frontlines led by women of color. Please keep more suggestions coming in the comments below.

As we mourn the lives lost to senseless police brutality, including the life of George Floyd, we know that we cannot remain silent. As individuals and as an organization, we condemn and will not tolerate racism and the ongoing violence towards Black Americans.⁠

We all have a role to play in resisting this hatred. As a community, we must do the work to overcome the structural racism and inequality that is being further exposed by both #covid19 and police brutality. And the best response when change feels impossible is to TAKE ACTION—no matter how small.⁠

Here are a few small steps we can take to change the world around us.⁠

• Don’t hold your tongue, speak up against injustice⁠
• Do the research and educate yourself⁠
• Be okay with being uncomfortable and have conversations about the ongoing racism, discrimination, and intolerance with people you love.⁠

For the rest of the week, we will be highlighting organizations at the frontlines led by women of color. Please keep more suggestions coming in the comments below.⁠
