REPRODUCTIVE JUSTICE PROGRAM MANAGER
Soul 2 Soul Sisters is a Black womxn-led, faith-based, racial-justice organization focused on Black healing and Black liberation. We are one of the few organizations in Colorado that unapologetically intersects Black faith/spiritualities, radical reproductive justice, racial justice, and increasing the power of the Black vote. Soul 2 Soul Sisters has a track record of protecting abortion as a private, sacred, human right that must be accessible for all. We strive to embody and model a new way of regarding and honoring Black womxn and Black womxn’s leadership, which includes protecting and honoring Black womxn’s human right to control decisions about our health, families and our futures.

The Interfaith Alliance of Colorado was founded in 1998 by a group of religious leaders who were searching for ways to give voice to Coloradans who wanted to put their faith into action as a progressive force for good in public life. Since then we’ve worked to bring people together from various religions and backgrounds to assure religious liberty (assuring freedom and equity for all) racial justice and economic justice. The Interfaith Alliance of Colorado has a strong history of working for women’s rights and abortion rights. Each year at the state legislature we address five to ten personhood, anti-abortion, and birth control access bills. As an organization we speak out against the bills, organize faith leaders to testify against the bills, and raise awareness about threats and opportunities to abortion rights and access.
