BLM Philly co-organized with New Voices the SayHERName March for Justice. New Voices is committed to the health and well-being of Black women, femmes, girls and women-identified folx at the intersection of Reproductive Justice and Black Lives. This rally, march, and healing space was dedicated to Breonna Taylor, Dominique “Rem’mie” Fells and all those who deserve honor and remembrance like 2-year-old Nalani Johnson. The march began at 56th & Chestnut and travelled to Malcolm X. Park.

This march focused on the lives of Black trans women who are constantly a target of violence by both the police and other people in society. Yahne Ngdo said, “There is no freedom for any of us if we don’t have freedom for all of us”…“Every single one of us.” The need to protect and elevate the safety and voices of our trans and nonbinary fam is highlighted in our statement here.
