Let's continue to reiterate to our fellow womxn in all communities that we are meant to and must continue to be unified. Our organization would like continuously influence our following and fellow womxn led organizations to push the message on the utmost importance this has. There is a current and ongoing war on womxn which is more the reason to push this message in an assertive manner. Building this awareness is a constant need. We hope with this campaign we influence womxn to lead or follow others with this same intentions and purpose.
“We have been working as womxn in communities for years to solidify longevity. I question how do we do that? To me it means to stay connected and really push for consistency by holding one another up. As an organization, it is important that we start to do more of this. I personally would love to keep myself accountable in hopes that we have more womxn in our communities seeking the same along with guidance and resources where needed. “
