Black Women’s March is a coalition of Black women that have teamed up to uplift, protect and fight for Black women. We were born out of the 2020 Black Lives Matter uprising. We are a group that centers and fights for all Black Lives while prioritizing the voices of Black Women.
Black Women's March was founded out of the necessity to bring Black Women voices and issues to the front of the movement that started in NYC at the end of May 2020.
As we protested for days all around the city, we noticed there were many Black Women leading this movement. We therefore understood the urgency of creating a group focused specifically on Black Women.
We also felt there was a need to center and create adequate representation for black women issues and cases such as those of Breonna Taylor, Tanisha Anderson and Sandra Bland and so many more.
There was also a need for Black Women centered protests in the movement as Women's March had not been on the ground, supportive of or speaking up for Black women. They were not visible at Black Lives Matter Protests either.
Black Women's March was also founded as a platform of support for Black Women and children in need as a consequence of the Covid-19 pandemic and the way they were affected disproportionately.
We are committed to taking the streets and making sure that everyone marching with us is safe at the same time. In addition to that we are committed to supporting Black women as directly as we can.
I wouldn’t be here without all of the black women around me. Put us together, and we can do anything
Our mission is to not only call attention to the systemic issues that harm and endanger black women but to directly intervene and offer tangible resources for all Black women.
Our aim is to actively work towards preventing the erasure of Black Women voices and labor in this movement to avoid the mistakes of the past.
Our goal is to support, protect, advocate and provide for Black Women and their children. Especially those that are disenfranchised as a result of systemic injustices and the shortcomings of the state.
Since our inception, we have organized civil disobedience in the name of justice for Black Women and more specifically, justice for Breonna Taylor. We will continue to organize and rally against the state sanctioned execution and discrimination of Black Women. We are committed to taking the streets and making sure that everyone marching with us is safe at the same time. In addition to that we are committed to supporting Black women as directly as we can.
We have and are currently organizing donation drives to support women shelters, foster homes, safe houses, nursing homes and other organizations dedicated to serving Black Women and children.
