On Saturday, September 27, Lady Parts Justice is hosting a nationwide celebration of women, with official events and house parties in every state. The V to Shining V celebration will mobilize pro-women advocates — and send a clear message to elected officials that we’re united in voting out those who trample on women’s rights.

Michigan’s party will be extra-special, thanks to the presence of our own Lisa Brown, whose being silenced for using the word “vagina” on the state House floor was a catalyst for the creation of Lady Parts Justice.

Brown, the Democratic candidate for Lt. Governor, will speak at the event at The Park Bar in Detroit that’s being held from 2-5 p.m.

The local activists putting together the Michigan event are delighted to announce the lineup of speakers and entertainers who will make this a day to remember:

Speakers:
•Lisa Brown, reproductive rights hero
•Rashida Tlaib, state Representative
•Renee Chelian, founder and executive director, Northland Family Planning Centers
•Dr. Mira Krishnan, behavioral health leader and LGBT/women’s/children’s advocate
•Amy Lynn Smith, writer and healthcare advocate

Performers:
•Lianna Carrera, comedian and host
•Holly Miranda
•Amy Gore
•Ambrosia Parsley
•Insite the Riot
•‘Nique Love Rhodes
•Jaci Caprice

The last three performers are members of the all-female Detroit hip-hop collective “The Foundation,” and other special guests may just make an appearance, too. I’m honored to be among such distinguished company. A representative of Right to Health will be on-hand with information and voter registration, and there will be plenty of other fun in store.
