Black Women’s Health Imperative Accepting Reproductive Justice Video Submissions

Posted: January 03, 2018

The Black Women’s Health Imperative (BWHI) would like to give a shout out to all the participants in the My Sister's Keeper (MSK) Challenge!

Judging by the response, it’s clear that young women want and need to be heard. One of the issues that everyone is talking about today is sexual harassment. But, this problem is more than just what is seen in the headlines. Protection and healing from the devastating physical, mental and emotional impact of sexual harassment is what RJ is about.

For this reason, BWHI has decided to extend the MSK Challenge competition period until January 31, 2018, to allow everyone the opportunity to submit videos that speak to this extremely important and timely subject as part of the overall RJ initiative. There are few issues that impact women of color as much as Reproductive Justice.

It’s not just the right to birth control and a safe abortion, to have children and the right not to have children, RJ is also the right to raise our children in a safe and healthy environment. And that means:

  • Racial Equality
  • Gender Equity
  • Sexual Wellness
  • Access to Affordable and Quality Healthcare
  • Protection From Intimate Partner Violence

Reproductive Justice impacts every facet of women's health and women's lives. That’s why the Black Women’s Health Imperative invites you to become part of the sisterhood speaking out and standing up for RJ, by joining them in the My Sisters Keeper Challenge.

Go to and send BWHI a 1-2 minute video with your story about what RJ means to women, to our world, and to you personally, and you may win a $1,000 cash prize, as well as the chance to make your video into a short film that will be featured during a national film festival.
