Watford Women's Centre stands in solidarity with BLM Movement

We support the Black Lives Matter Movement and all those who seek to  eradicate injustice across the globe. We recognise the devastating impact of  structural racism on people's life chances across health, education, employment and justice. We will always consider issues of intersectionality in our approach to equality & feminism and are committed to amplifying the voices of black women in our work.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I am a supporter of Watford Women’s Centre because I love being involved in this specialist community that does so much to ensure all women can reach their full potential. In the most difficult situations, this centre provides a lifeline.
