Every person of color should be able to walk any street with pride and in comfort, with peace of mind. Free from ridicule and judgement. Kimberlé Crenshaw, who developed and named the idea of “intersectionality," wrote: “If Black lives really do matter, ALL Black lives have to matter. That means Black lives across gender have to be lifted up. #SayHerName is a clarion call, not just a hashtag -- a demand that the stories and perspectives of Black women are included in our demands for justice and accountability.”
