Stories from the new Chime Zine, #SayHerName dedicated to Black women victimized by police violence.


The new special edition of the CHIME FOR CHANGE Zine amplifies the voices of Black women and girls in gender violence discourses to uplift their stories, advance a gender-inclusive narrative in the movement for Black lives, and demand intersectional justice.

Created in collaboration with the African American Policy Forum and guest-edited by Kimberlé Crenshaw, the CHIME Zine is dedicated to the #SayHerName campaign—first launched in December 2014 to bring awareness to the often-invisible names and stories of Black women and girls who have been victimized by police violence.

This podcast episode features the stories of three Black women who were victims of police violence. Their stories will be told by family members who carry forth their legacy—mothers and sisters who are also contributors to the Zine.

You will hear from Gina Best, the mother of India Kager who was killed by Virginia Beach police in 2015; then Maria Moore, the sister of Kayla Moore who was killed by Berkeley police in 2013; and to conclude, Melania Brown, the sister of Layleen Xtravaganza Cubilette-Polanco, who died in solitary confinement at Rikers Island jail in June 2019.
