About The Hamer Project:
The Hamer Project is based on the principles of communal ownership, Freedom Farms, and the work of Fannie Lou Hamer. Named in her honor, the project will advance initiatives centric to the holistic well-being of black girls and women by focusing on human rights education and community-building through a variety of clinics and workshops. A select group of facilitators will work within communities to support efforts to restructure systems and invest in sustainable means of survival and advancement.
