Hundreds of activists gathered in Washington D.C. over the weekend to take part of the #MarchForBlackWomen, which was held to bring raise awareness around the frequently overlooked issues black women face. 

According to the organization's website, the march serves as a catalyst to “denounce the propagation of state-violence and the widespread incarceration of Black women and girls, rape and all sexualized violence, the murders and brutalization of transwomen and the disappearances of our girls from our streets, our schools and our homes."

Open to all, the March for Black Women grew to be something even bigger when it converged with the March for Racial Justice. Although the two marches started their actions at different times, they met up before heading to the U.S. Department of Justice headquarters and the National Mall.

“Our March is not only a mass mobilization centered on Black women," the march's website reads. "But a reminder to every single one of us that so long as Black women are killed by the cops; so long as Black women are taken or go missing; so long as we are raped by friends or by strangers or by nationally renown predators ― there can be NO JUSTICE.”
