Today cities across the U.S. and the world are coming together in solidarity to Say Her Name, honor Her life and to draw attention to the epidemic of police brutality, state sanctioned human rights violations and extreme male violence (both domestic and hate crimes) targeting Black women and girls. This call to action was put out by BYP100, Black Lives Matter Network, Project South, Ferguson Action and other activists and community members to expose and abolish state violence against ALL Black women and girls.
