A National Town Hall Series on Women & Girls of Color

Breaking the silence

Launched in 2014, Breaking the Silence is a national town hall series focused on elevating the stories and experiences of women and girls of color.  Through these hearings, AAPF has sought 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. Thus far, we have partnered with local organizations to hold town hall events in New York, Los Angeles, Atlanta, Chicago, DC, Baltimore, Miami, New Orleans, Philadelphia, Oakland, Greensboro, and Canton, OH.
