In 2014, AAPF launched a national town hall series focused on elevating the stories and experiences of women and girls of color. Thus far, we have partnered with local organizations to hold town hall events in New York, Los Angeles, Atlanta, Chicago, Washington DC, Baltimore, Miami, New Orleans, Philadelphia, and Oakland. In 2016, we plan to continue expanding local partnership on these events in cities throughout the country. AAPF’s commitment in hosting town hall hearings is to bring the circumstances facing many women of color out of the shadows and squarely into public policy debates, while helping community leaders develop and advance local agendas for gender inclusive racial justice.
