------- SA IWD Vision Statement ---------
We, like women and girls all over the world, are the voices of conscience, the roots of change and the leaders of local and global movements. Out of love for our communities, we come together time and time again to envision and create a world in which all people are free from exploitation, oppression and violence.
As women and girls, we have learned the meaning of these injustices. Our work has gone unpaid. Our bodies have been bought and sold. Our desires have been demonized. Our voices have been silenced. And our efforts to come together have been violently repressed by institutions of power like governments, churches, banks, schools, prisons and other spaces in which we have been subjected to oppression.
We have come together to make positive social change and have been the targets of racist, classist, homophobic and sexist attacks. Despite this history of repression, we continue to stand together, unwavering on the issues that are of critical importance to our communities. We seek healthcare, environmental justice, housing, education and fair wages not just as women, but also as people of color, as youth and elders, as immigrants and indigenous people, as lesbian, bisexual, intersex, two-spirit, transgender and queer women, and as poor and working class people. We oppose all forms of violence. We advocate for reproductive choice. We call for an end to war, genocide and occupation.
We claim our own voices and come together to share them in public spaces. We march in solidarity with women and social justice movements around the world.
T-shirts will be sold at the "I Love Planned Parenthood" event on Feb 24th as well as the day of the march.
