“I want to be able to share my story with young women out there,” Sandra Bland had told Women4Women co-founder, Chenai Okammor. Women4Women serves as a network and forum of “multi-age, multi-ethnic, multi-lingual, and multi-color women who will support each other on issues addressing a healthy MIND, BODY, AND SPIRIT,” according to the website. Before her death in a Texas jail cell, Bland had been working on the launch of the site.

Women4Women’s launch was announced via the newsletter, Lenny, from actress and screenwriter among other things, Lena Dunham.

Lenny was not scheduled to be released for a few weeks from now, however, the early edition tease wanted to keep the Sandra Bland name fresh in our minds.

Okammor interviewed with Dunham and expressed the following:

“Police brutality visits upon black American citizens the sort of dehumanization that persists even after death; full, complicated, and healthy lives get flattened out in memory, becoming only the length of the fatal interaction,” adding that, “We wanted to tell you about it before Lenny’s official launch this fall, so that you could share it with your friends and cement Sandra’s legacy.”
