This International Women's Day, we once again celebrate the lived experiences and contributions of those who tirelessly demand gender, racial, economic and social justice for all women and girls.
We take this moment to affirm our shared humanity - to recognize the beauty in our diversity and the dignity inherent in others. We recognize the power of sharing our stories with one another, and we honor and join in community with those who continually work to ignite transformative change. In solidarity, WE STAND with our friends and allies from around the globe to envision and create a world where justice, peace, hope, and freedom are present in the lives of all.
We deeply value the dedication and support of all advocates, and wish you renewed energy, hope, and inspiration as we work alongside each other. #PressforProgress
NRCDV celebrates International Women's Day each year by commissioning or purchasing a piece of artwork created by a woman or a collective of women that honors the struggles and successes that we face. Through this art, we join with women across the world in envisioning and working to make real a future of autonomy and equality for women and girls.
Listen NRCDV Radio's latest podcast with Anisah Gonzalez, focus of our IWD artwork, as she discusses activism, growing up as a woman of color, and shares her poetry.
