Women's Center In New Orleans Destroyed By Arson, Third Incident in the South

From the website of New Orleans Women With A Vision, a health clinic which specifically helped "marginalized women," poor women, women of color, and transgender women as well as HIV/AIDS patients:

Thanks to the fast response of all of our supporters across the country, many of you have already heard that our office was broken into last night and set on fire. The worst damage was concentrated in our community organizing and outreach office where we store all of the resources we use to educate our community. We lost everything. We do not have an office to operate out of right now. Most of our office equipment and all of our educational resources were destroyed. Because of the targeted nature, we can only assume that this was intentional.

In Georgia last week, two similar incidents occurred at Ob/Gyn offices.
