Black Women's Blueprint, Inc. is a civil and human rights organization of women and men. Our purpose is to take action to secure social, political and economic equality in American society now. We work to develop a culture where Women of African descent are fully empowered and where gender, race and other disparities are erased. We engage in progressive research, historical documentation, support movement building and organize on social justice issues steeped in the struggles of Black Women within their communities and within dominant culture.
Currently, we are immersed in our work with The Black Women's Truth and Reconciliation Commission. It is the first of its kind to focus on Black Women in America and their experiences with sexual violence and it was launched by Black Feminists in the U.S. It is a bold, innovative and groundbreaking move by Black Women across generation, ethnicity, sexuality and other identities to confront the ever shifting nature of rape culture and sexual violence against African-American/Black women in the United-States.
One of the four main crucial components to this work ishealing and we are looking for a writer to create weekly blog pieces centered around healing, whether it be on an individual, inter-personal and/or community degree. We are looking for someone who is not only willing to speak truth but who also works actively to promote the blog and engage our readership in these important discussions.
Develop weekly blog pieces surrounding the theme of healing related to violence against women, trauma, resistance work, violence at the personal/inter-personal/community areas, etc.
Engage our readers to discuss the themes written in the pieces as well as the work Black Women's Blueprint does via blogging and social media
