"Our Bodies Our Business" is a project promoting self-care and reproductive education to Black people with vaginas in North Alabama. As a response to the recent Dobbs vs JWHO decision and an influx of need requests from Black mothers in the area, we want to create supportive spaces for Black families and bring together our community. Every third Saturday starting Oct. 15, 2022, Project Say Something will provide free daycare ( courtesy of Focus Scope ) to Black mothers who attend the event, giving them the opportunity to unwind, unpack, and learn more about how to care for their bodies. The event will Include free food, self care activities, free emergency contraceptives and more. This event is not exclusive to mothers.
