Ayana is a reproductive health activist and helps her mom with HIV/AIDS advocacy work. She has been inspired by her experiences at Let's Talk suppers at Ashé Cultural Arts Center. The Let's Talk suppers lead with art and culture to address issues of reproductive health, rights, and justice, and focuses on leadership development, cultural competency, peer education, and collaboration as catalysts for systemic change. Building the next generation of leaders is critical to mobilizing and moving forward reproductive health and equity.
