Loretta Ross on Trust Black Women and the fight for Reproductive Justice


When such a racialized strategy is used to weaken the prochoice movement, as an African American women I felt the best people to respond would be the black women who were under attack.

For over 20 years Loretta J. Ross has been fighting for the rights of women of color.

As a co-founder of SisterSong Women of Color Reproductive Justice Collective she organized women of color in the reproductive justice movement and was one of the creators of the term “Reproductive Justice” in 1994.

In this 4-min interview exceprt, Ross talks about starting the Trust Black Women campaign in response to anti-abortion billboards and legislation meant to shame Black and Asian women and make abortions illegal.
