Black Women’s Blueprint is planning justice ride to Pennsylvania ahead of Bill Cosby’s retrial
Black Women’s Blueprint is on the road to PA for the start of the Cosby retrial. We are mobilizing to center survivors and to seek justice for the women who have come forward and for those who have not spoken their truth but live inside it everyday. https://t.co/xBPsIOBe2C

As jury selection for Bill Cosby’s retrial is set to begin on April 2, Black Women’s Blueprint has organized a justice ride from its Brooklyn, New York, headquarters to Norristown, Pennsylvania, to kick off its #CosbyWatch campaign.
“What we’re really looking at is defining what justice looks like from a survivor’s perspective,” Sevonna Brown, Black Women’s Blueprint’s human rights project manager, said.
“It’s not just choosing: Are you going to continue to support this artist? Are you going to continue to watch this TV show? Are you going to endorse this celebrity?” Brown said. “But what are the real conversations that we’re going to have within black communities to talk about undoing intercommunal violence? What does accountability look like? What does consent-based education look like?”
