It’s been a few days and I’m still so pleased with the Defenders of Love show on Wednesday. It was amazing because of all of the people who performed and donated their time and products to help raise money for the Brooklyn Young Mother’s Collective and to help promote the idea of being DEFENDERS!
It was an easy choice to choose this issue to DEFEND. Motherhood is the most sacred and important role that we have in our society and needs to be respected and supported whether the mother has a partner or not. Women are often marginalized in our society and women with children even more so. Today many women are struggling with debt and it’s even harder if you are a single mother trying to support your family.
The mission of The Brooklyn Young Mothers’ Collective is to break the cycle of generational poverty among pregnant and parenting low-income mothers by helping them actively engage in improving the conditions that impact their lives. We do this by providing comprehensive sexuality and reproductive health education, legal information and advocacy support. We also build leadership skills in young mothers and organize them to improve the response of community and government agencies in addressing their needs.
There are so many ways for us to defend our rights by using our talents and skills! If we all work together – who knows what we can make happen!? I know what did happen on Wednesday- we created & shared a lot of Magic Passion Love with each other .. and this only means there’s more positive energy in the world! Thanks for being a part of it!
