After powerful testimonios from survivors who were part of the Madrigal case, family members, Producer of “No Mas Bebés”, Virginia Espino and our very own Senior Policy Manager, Myra Durán, the County of Los Ángeles has FINALLY voted unanimously to publicly apologize to the countless women who were forcibly sterilized at the LA County USC Medical Center. Thank you to the Hernandez, Hermosillo, Orozco and Figueroa families for your incredible strength in sharing your stories and to Los Ángeles County Board of Supervisors Sheila Kuehl and Hilda L. Solis for introducing the motion to support SB 1190 in the state legislature and to finally hold Los Ángeles County accountable for the injustices committed against our community. We will continue to fight for our families and communities until we can all live with dignity, self-determination and bodily autonomy.

Today beginning at 9:30am, the Los Ángeles County Board of Supervisors (see link in profile for livestream) will be voting on a resolution in support of SB 1190 and a formal apology to the mujeres that were sterilized at the LA County Hospital in the 70’s. Support those speaking on behalf of the resolution, including one of the plaintiffs of the Madrigal Case, Melvina Hernandez, by viewing the livestream of the meeting.

Supporting survivors of forced sterilizations is not only the right thing to do, but necessary to reaffirm the dignity and self determination of people who were denied their basic bodily autonomy.

We are so close to reaching our goal of raising $4,000 to train and take 15 Latina/x leaders to Sacramento on August 15th! Can you pitch in $5, $10, $50 to get us there?
Link in profile or go to:
Young parent leaders are working hard pushing against a culture and society that has tried to bury their aspirations, hopes, and dreams. Young parents challenge us to shift the way our communities approach youth sexuality and their right to parent their children within a supportive environment.

Can you help us raise $500 to make sure no one is left behind? Let's train, prepare, and support the next generation of advocates!

Today is the International Afro-Latin American, Afro-Caribbean and Diaspora Women's Day!
"[26] years ago, International Afro-Latin American, Afro-Caribbean and Diaspora Women’s Day was founded at the First Meeting of Afro-Latin American and Afro-Caribbean Women in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic to celebrate culture and identity and combat racism and sexism. Additionally, during this day, July 25, 1992, La Red de Mujeres Afro-Latinoamericanas, Afro-Caribeña y de la Diáspora (Network of Afro-Latin American and Afro-Caribbean Women of the Diaspora) was born. The day has since been celebrated across Latin America and the Caribbean." #ReproJustice #ThisIsRJ
