National Physical Fitness Month
by 2017 DWJ Fellow Chasitie Neal 
This month BWOPA/TILE and the DWJ Fellows are proud to celebrate National Physical Fitness and Sports while acknowledging Black Women Advocating for Healthy Living. My name is Chasitie Neal and I am a DWJ Fellow from Fresno, Ca. My DWJ Fellows public policy issue area is economic security. I chose economic security because I felt that it is extremely important to understand how to gain economic freedom as an African-American in today's society. One of greatest opportunities and failures of the African American community has been in gaining and keeping economic security. I found it interesting that we have a billion dollar shopping power but our business on average aren't making $100,00 a year. Redlining has always been our enemy, but our voices, our presence, and our money does matter.

BWOPA/TILE supports, Let’s Declare December 3rd the United Day of Women

Now more than ever, it’s up to us to turn individual passion into collective action and organize around the issues facing our communities. 

That’s why we’re calling on you to join us in declaring December 3rd the United Day of Women. This nationwide day of action will serve as a way for communities across the country to stand united and discuss the issues most important to them – while receiving tools, resources, and grassroots organizing tactics from movement leaders.

Host a house party in your neighborhood and rally the people in your life who are ready to fight to protect the progress we’ve made as a movement.
 


 
But don’t stop there. Post about it on social media and tag friends challenging them to host an event too. These events aren’t just for women, invite anyone in your life who cares about equality – because change is a “we” thing.

Head over to the United State of Women Facebook page to get the details and the materials you’ll need to host your own #UnitedDayofWomen house party!

In solidarity,
The United State of Women Team
