Featured Activism of the Day!

Today we're featuring another group actively engaged in combating the WAR ON BLACK WOMEN. They are called the SpiritHouse. and they have launched the Our Name is Our Own Campaign.

On the tails of the hurtful words of Don Imus, the Our Name is Our Own Campaign™ will target the systemic level of this habitual branding, and how it sabotages the work of social justice and obscures the vision for our common dreams. This grassroots campaign will be unveiled by Ruby Sales -- acclaimed civil rights activist, social critic, public theologian and history maker


Drop by and read about what they are all about. If you know of another group working it out, let me know.

Featured Activism of the Day!

Evia is sponsoring a campaign to contact the Federal Communications Commission. Stop by her blog and take part in her campaign.

Sistas, please stay tuned for some FCC (Federal Communications Commission) e-mail addresses that I'll be posting later today to which we MUST write in order for them to know how we feel about all of the SMUT talk on the air waves that denigrates, debases, degrades, and defames Black women. You've got to be explicit and let them know that this constant bombardment causes us PAIN. Let's not be cute about this.
Evia
If you know of someone else who has a campaign to take ACTION right now, let me know and I will post it.
