On Saturday, September 30, 2017, Black women in all their diversity will come together for the MARCH FOR BLACK WOMEN – Phoenix (M4BWPhx) in downtown Phoenix at the Historic Eastlake Park (formally Patton’s Park) to denounce the propagation of state-violence and the widespread incarceration of Black women and girls, rape and all sexualized violence, the murders and brutalization of transwomen and the disappearances of our girls from our streets, our schools and our homes. A coalition of local Black women will also host a Town hall for Black Women on Thursday, September 28, 2017 at 6:00pm in advance of Saturday’s March at Eastlake Park. The Phoenix sister march is a part of nationwide mobilization of Black women. The national March for Black Women, hosted by Black Women’s Blueprint, Black Youth Project 100, and Trans Sistas of Color Project, will take place in Washington, DC. There are sister marches in other cities across the country as well.
