While New Orleans Slept, an Arsonist Sent a Message

Last Friday morning at 4 AM, when most of New Orleans was sleeping, one or more arsonists torched the offices of Women With A Vision (WWAV), a group run by activist women of color. When an arsonist breaks into the offices of fierce women of color, sets fire to HIV education materials, and torches plastic replicas of vaginas and breasts, we’d say the evidence is clear. It’s a hate crime.
