Take Action

Why should policymakers center Black women? Black women are the core of the nation’s economy, holding the front-line jobs, running small businesses, and are more often the single heads of households. If we are elevated through policy, including everything from paid leave to stimulus programs, the economy and larger community will benefit. I Be Black Girl Take Action seeks to influence policy and the surrounding systems to center Black women, femmes and girls.
