About the Summit

The Texas Black Women’s Reproductive Justice Summit & #‎TXBlackWomenRiseUp campaign was created in direct response to the state of Black women’s reproductive health in Texas.

The 2016 TXBWRJ Summit, held in Dallas, sought to connect Black women with Reproductive Health, Rights, and Justice organizations working in Texas. Attendee’s shared stories to facilitate healing and built relationships for long-term change; acquired a framework to implement in their respective districts, communities and organizations.

This was a convening where Black Women Lead critical abortion and reproductive rights conversations. As a result, TAC was able to lay the foundation for an intersectional policy agenda focused on groundbreaking solutions.
