Advocacy

I Be Black Girl believes policy is a driver for change within our approach to reproductive justice. Policy has historically been weaponized against Black communities, as a result, we are committed to building  Black political power to address the harm and chart a new experience of legislation that centers Black women, femmes and girls.

Community Power Building

Community power building is central to our advocacy approach and is vital to the engagement and empowerment of Black women, femmes, and girls within the political process. Power building is defined as building and sustaining an organized base of people most impacted by structural inequities, and collectively engaging in the processes of changing policies and institutions. There are several models to build power in our community. We approach power building through disseminating information to our community, hosting community events and training, and directly providing resources to Black women and birthing folks.

Policy

Uplifting our voices in decision-making spaces is a way to combat the systemic racism that exacerbates health and economic disparities within our community. Therefore, pushing a policy agenda within Nebraska is imperative to improve our lives, protect our autonomy, and reach our full-potential. We ensure to promote legislative bills that directly impact our livelihood, and provide support to those who want to participate in the political process.
