Hello Friends,
We've got lots of exciting things underway on the state and national level at the MS Black Women's Roundtable.

First, MS-BWR has joined the national We Demand More Coalition to fight for COVID-19 relief funds. Right now, women across America - black women and other women of color - are on the front lines doing the essential work of keeping our communities going while struggling to care for themselves and their families. This non-electoral campaign is advocating for more resources at the federal level during the next round of stimulus funding for facing COVID-19 and to protect our people. By adding your online signature, you are saying "Women and Families Demand More."

Also, we wanted to remind you that Mississippi's 2020 legislative session is starting back up this week. Please stay plugged in with MS-BWR so you can take the needed actions in support of measures critical for Mississippi's Black women and girls.

Finally, our bi-monthly virtual Coffee Con will resume this Thursday, May 28 at noon. Please see below for all the details and the link to join us.

In the work,

Cassandra Welchlin
MS-BWR Lead organizer/Co-convenor

Mind, Body, and Hair!  
Census PSA
Let's talk about some super PRESSing issues we're dealing with amid COVID-19 - OUR HAIR?! Our May 28th Coffee Con entitled’ Mind, Body, and Hair ’ will center on hair care in quarantine 2020. We know the salons are opening across the state but as salons open COVID numbers in the community increase. We’re hoping we can help you manage your tresses AT HOME. We will hear from hair care experts about how to care for your hair during the quarantine. It will also feature Candace Saulsberry, a yoga instructor who will teach us ways to stay moving and centered during this time. #SistaChat #VirtualChat #CoffeeCon
