A spoken word artist and activist, Monica Simpson founded SisterSong, an organization that focuses on the reproductive rights of women in marginalized communities. She shares why she has found her calling in the reproductive justice movement.
“I feel this movement is my political home and it was waiting for me. I've done work in queer liberation work, and I've done work against the prison-industrial complex and so many other things that are super important to me. But this was the first movement where I felt like I could bring all parts of me together. And I didn't have to separate anything to be fully present in this work. My uterus, my queerness, my blackness—everything about who I am was centered and held sacred and was honored in this movement.”
