    Supporting the Fight for Reproductive Justice

    The Therapy for Black Girls Podcast is a weekly conversation with Dr. Joy Harden Bradford, a licensed Psychologist in Atlanta, Georgia, about all things mental health, personal development, and all the small decisions we can make to become the best possible versions of ourselves.
    The fight for reproductive justice has become even more significant following a recent law that passed in Texas making abortions more restrictive. Now more than ever it’s important for us to be engaged in and supporting the efforts of those fighting for the rights of the most marginalized. Joining us today to share about her work in this space is Yamani Hernandez. Yamani and I chatted about what leadership looks like in this space at this moment, protecting your mental health while doing this work, what it looks like to do this work in the age of social media, and she shared ways for you to get involved in supporting this important movement.
