The Afiya Center understands that the reproductive justice framework is the driving force behind sexual and reproductive rights for Black women. By utilizing this multi-pronged framework, The Afiya Center continues to bring awareness to the connections between reproductive oppression and the increased risk of transmission of HIV to women of color. Additionally, The Afiya Center believes that reproductive justice is a platform to create advocacy that is informed, self-actualized, and protects women’s reproductive health, rights, and justice. We are proud to be the creators of Texas’s First Black Women’s Reproductive Justice Policy Summit. Texas Black women have grown tired of being left out of the conversations being had about their bodies and for that reason, The Afiya Center has taken the charge to amplify their voices and spearhead the First Ever Texas Black Women’s Reproductive Justice Policy Summit. The purpose of the summit was to create a convening of Black women in Texas who can lead the conversation on the critical issues surrounding Black women, reproductive rights, and the abortion movement. The big vision is to bring in new allies and resources for Black women living in Texas and provide a framework to implement in their respective districts, communities, and organizations.
