“A nation is not conquered until the hearts of its women are on the ground. Then it is done, no matter how brave its warriors nor how strong their weapons.”
― Cheyenne proverb, found in the book Lakota Woman by Mary Crow Dog
In the wake of the anti-abortion bill that was signed into law last week, we want to highlight the organizations in Alabama and across the nation that champion female empowerment and are focused on women’s rights, healthcare, and economic development. We hope that you will join us in support of these organizations that are aiming for a more hopeful and inclusive future for all. Here are just a few:
Alabama Coalition Against Domestic Violence (ACADV)
The Women’s Fund of Greater Birmingham
Planned Parenthood Heath Centers in Alabama
Physicians for Reproductive Heath
“What You Can Do to Help Women in States With Extreme Abortion Bans”

Thank you for speaking up against extremism and for the rights of women. It is seen and very much appreciated, and I know these kinds of public statements can be difficult to make for any business.
