Seeks Books by Women of Color authors
for a Radical Women of Color Lending Library Project

The New Orleans Women of Color Resource & Organizing Center (a joint project of the WHJI and INCITE! Women of Color Against Violence – New Orleans ) will serve as a resource and organizing hub to nurture grassroots organizing and activism to end violence against women of color, linking struggles against the violence of poverty, incarceration, environmental racism, housing discrimination, economic exploitation, and medical experimentation and forced sterilization.  The Center will provide a host of movement building and leadership development programs, activities, and resources to end violence against women of color; the Center will also house a radical women of color lending library, a cluster of computers for community use, meeting space, and a comfortable environment for women and girls to hangout.

    You actually make it appear really easy with your presentation but I to find this matter to be
    actually something which I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complex and very wide for me. I’m having a look ahead to your subsequent submit, I’ll try to get the hold
    of it!
