    "As Black women, we're often carry the torch for caring for our families and communities.  We do what we can individually, but real change comes when we stand together.  This is what Higher Heights' Founders Circle is all about: uniting and leveraging our resources for broad-based change.”
    -Beatrice Sibblies, Founding Member and Membership Chair

    An investment in Black women is a winning investment!

    Now more than ever, Black women have a pivotal role to play in moving our country forward, and there is no organization as intimately connected to America’s community of Black women voter, advocates and leaders as Higher Heights.

    We are dedicated to creating an environment for Black women’s sustained political leadership and engagement, and we are winning. Imagine what is possible with your support. Unleashing the organizing potential of Black women at the polls and on the ballot starts with you. Here’s how you can help #BlackWomenLead:



    We are recruiting Black women to host Sister to Sister Salon Conversations across the country and we need your engagement.

    During the Salon Conversation your guests will explore the issues Black women care about and possible solutions as well as identify the barriers and opportunities that exist to build an effective strategy to support and expand Black women's leadership.

    Can we count you in? Sign up to be a host today and help Higher Heights elevate Black women’s voices.  Please fill out the form and our team will follow up with you to discuss next steps.
