We will culminate the summit with tangible action plans and commitments from attendees to help build a new collective story of menstrual health, rights, and justice for Black women.

This summit will bring together passionate advocates from diverse communities to launch a movement for Black Menstrual Health. We will explore how we can use education, storytelling, innovation, and mobilization to transform Black Menstrual Health, rights and justice.

It is important to note that while this event centers Black women, reproductive rights advocates of any gender identity are welcome. We encourage allies to join us as we work towards a world that respects and honors Black bodies and experiences in all their forms.

All are welcome, including children! We will have activities for children of all ages, such as storytelling time, art projects and physical movement. This will be a family-friendly event. Come join us for an empowering day committed to advancing the cause of menstrual, mental, and maternal health.
