"Unite to Stop Racist and Sexist Discrimination Against Black Women!" flyer presented by the Women of Color Caucus of the D.C. Rape Crisis Center. "Raise Your Voice" was a lunchtime demonstration on March 16, 1988 in Washington, D.C., in protest against the policies of J.W. Marriot and other companies that were prohibiting black women from wearing cornrows. The event was organized by Nkenge Touré, who was at the D.C. Rape Crisis Center at the time, and Loretta Ross, who was at the National Organization for Women at the time.
