Working in partnership with the national African American Policy Forum (AAPF) led by Black Feminist Legal Scholar, Kimberle Crenshaw the architect of the #SayHerName movement, the Breaking the Silence national town hall series model focuses on elevating the stories and experiences of women and girls of color. While Black women and girls continue to lead the nation by influencing critical elections, leading social movements, and ensuring the wellbeing of their communities, they are still left behind.
