Title: “Organizing through a Reproductive Justice Lens in the American South”
Bio:  Deon Haywood is the Executive Director of Women With A Vision, Inc. (www.WWAV-no.org), a New Orleans-based community organization founded in 1989 to improve the lives of marginalized women, their families, and communities by addressing the social conditions that hinder their health and well-being. Since Hurricane Katrina, Deon has led the organization to a vibrant locally-rooted international network addressing the complex intersection of socio-economic injustices and health disparities. In 2009, Deon oversaw the launch of WWAV’s NO Justice Project, a campaign to combat the sentencing of women and trans* people arrested for street-based sex work under Louisiana’s 203-year-old “crime against nature” felony-level law, which resulted in a federal judicial ruling and the removal of more than 700 women from the sex offender registry. Deon received the Pandora Singleton Ally Award for 20 years of service as a non-positive ally in the movement. Deon was also part of the inaugural class of Public Voices Fellows with the Ms. Foundation (2016) at the 7th Annual 2020 Leading Women’s Society Awards. She was also the 2017 recipient of the 41st Ben Smith Award from the A.C.L.U. of Louisiana.
