The Story of Elect Black Women
Founded in 2020
It’s past time we address the violence, trauma, and inequities present in the everyday lives of Black Americans -- in education, housing, and policing. We need to work on electing new leaders who understand the systemic roots of these injustices.
Since his election, Trump -- alongside his complicit Republican loyalists -- has encouraged white supremacy at all levels of our government and society. After Kenosha police shot Jacob Blake in the back seven times, a radicalized 17-year-old boy traveled across state lines with a rifle, ultimately killing two people who dared to protest against the racial injustices occurring in this country every day. In the days that followed, Donald Trump defended the actions of this homegrown domestic terrorist -- but has been unsurprisingly silent about Jacob Blake. This is NOT acceptable leadership.
Trump and the GOP are doing everything they can to keep their white supremacist agenda in the White House and Congress. They plan to suppress Black women's votes because they know that we are one of the most active voting blocs in America. And if we assert our power and elect more Black women, we’ll start to put an end to their rampant racism and misogyny.
Right now, there is an army of qualified, capable, powerful Black women candidates ready to take back Congress from its racist white occupants to bring about a new dawn of racial justice. But we're just getting started -- and we need to build the funds to support their races.
With your help, we'll FUND their campaigns against anti-Black, pro-suppression agendas.
I’m asking you to join me and the thousands of women who are fighting on the front lines to change our political landscape by becoming a Founding Member of Elect Black Women today.
Thank you for joining us as we make history by ending the systemic barriers keeping Black women from power.
Yours in service,
