Mothering in Abundance

Loretta Ross, co-founder of SisterSong and a founding mother of the Reproductive Justice movement, redefines mothering as “creating, nurturing, affirming and supporting life” in the book Revolutionary Mothering. Mothering is “love by any means necessary”.

Led by SisterSong Women of Color Reproductive Justice Collective, “Mothering in Abundance” is a free, 6-month-long cohort of mothering people in Durham, North Carolina.

Rooted in a Black queer feminist politic, over the course of six months (March – August 2022), the cohort will participate in monthly leadership development trainings and monthly community building events to bring together mothering people in a time of uncertainty and isolation.

Leadership development trainings will include: Narrative Telling, Reproductive Justice 101, Queer & Trans Centered Birth Justice, and more! We use the term mothering as a broad term relating to birth, abortion, parenting, and loss, and encourage you to apply accordingly.
Applications are due by Friday, February 4th at 11:59pm EST. Please, email SisterSong’s North Carolina Coordinator, Maya Hart with any questions. 

This application is open to ALL Black, Indigenous, and people of color living in Durham, North Carolina who identify with the experience of mothering. This is a queer-friendly space. Thank you to Maricarmen Telloli (@maritelloli on Instagram) for the beautiful image.
