The Day After Tomorrow

The election is over - but the fight to protect our friends, families, and communities is not. Democracy does not begin and end on Election Day. In fact, it begins.

The late Congresswoman Barbara Jordan once said, “what the people want is very simple: they want an America as good as its promise.” This statement rings true today and Black women have an important role to play to make sure we keep this country moving forward.

There is far too much at stake for our nation. The new administration must listen to the voices of Black women - and take action on the issues that matter most to us: the economy and jobs, systemic racism, police brutality, and access to affordable - and comprehensive - health care.

We need you to help us keep fighting to ensure that Black women’s voices, votes and leadership are heard in the American body politic. We must write letters, send emails, call our senators our representatives, knock doors, and continue to build the political power of Black women on the state and local level.

Donate to our campaign and help us make sure America keeps its promise to 23 million Black women, their families and communities. We will be watching closely - and we will make sure our voices are not ignored.
