Monica Raye Simpson is the Executive Director of SisterSong, a woman of Color Reproductive
Justice Collective. A native of rural North Carolina, Monica organizes against human rights
violations, the prison industrial complex, and structural racism through a feminist and
interdisciplinary approach to Black liberation from a southern to a global scale. A true
renaissance leader, she is also committed to birth justice as a certified Doula and centers the
reproductive rights of black women as part of her practice. Monica’s masterful integration of
activism and artistry “artivism,” created a path for the release of her first live album entitled
Revolutionary Love, an album praised for its blending of her gospel roots and her passion for
social justice. This innovative sound is what she calls Revolutionary Soul. As a performer who
works to empower marginalized people and tear down broken systems, Monica was named as
a New Civil Rights Leader by Essence Magazine and chosen as one of the Advocate
magazine’s 40 under 40 leaders.
