  • $40,572.75 raised
    GOAL: $50,000.00


    This summer, Black women are showing us how they lead.

    There are Black women running for mayor all over the country.

    Black women are stepping off the sidelines and preparing to run for Congress next year.

    Thousands of Black women are raising their voices across this country to fight attempts to roll back 50 years of progress by attending protests and town hall meetings and calling and emailing their elected leaders.

    There is a lot of work to do to elevate the voices of Black women and mobilize them to the voting booth in the upcoming elections.

    We need your help to raise $50,000 by September 15th. That breaks down to $5,000 a week.

    We need members like you to continue to support our work to:

    • Prepare and empower Black women interested in running for office;
    • Host salon conversations across the country to ensure that Black women’s voices are heard in important policy debates and;
    • Support candidates like Yvette Simpson who is running to be Mayor of Cincinnati, OH and Stacey Abrams who is running to be the first woman Governor of Georgia.

    Thank you for helping us Elevate. Activate and Mobilize Black women!
