#BlackWomenLead State of Our Union

State_of_our_union.pngThis Tuesday, the President will deliver his first State of the Union Address. Rather than simply tune out, we hope that you tune in to our event — women are coming together in D.C. that same evening to share the State of OUR Union.

Join us Tuesday at 8PM EST as we broadcast live from the National Press Club in Washington D.C. We'll share a new vision from women across America who are fighting for a future where all women — all people — can be with and care for their families, and live and work with safety and dignity. RSVP now to watch the State of Our Union.

Speakers will include:

  • Tarana Burke, #MeToo movement creator
  • Mónica Ramirez from Alianza Nacional de Campesinas (the National Farmworker Women’s Alliance)
  • Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal
  • Congresswoman Judy Chu


RSVP today to receive instructions on how to tune in. And join the conversation on Tuesday on social media with the hashtag #BlackWomenLead #StateOfOurUnion.

Higher Heights has joined a growing list of partners for this powerful event co-sponsored by Alianza Nacional de Campesinas, Caring Across Generations, Color of Change, Girls for Gender Equity, Moms Rising, Planned Parenthood, and many more.

This is OUR union. Women — and all people — deserve to be free, safe, and able to care for their families in healthy, sustainable environments. And it will take every one of us to make this possible. We hope you will join us on Tuesday.
