THE SPACES CREATED BY BLACK WOMXN FOR ARE INTENTIONALLY INCLUSIVE OF ALL BLACK FOLKS THAT DO NOT CLAIM MALE IDENTITY.
THIS INCLUDES BLACK TRANS & CIS WOMEN, GENDER NON-CONFORMING FOLKS AND OTHERS.
Black Womxn For is a new project focused on creating intentional meeting spaces for Black Women and gender-nonconforming community leaders and activist to talk with each other about the democratic primary and our impact on the 2020 elections.
If progressive Black Womxn are organized, resourced, and feel in their power to support the candidate that reflects our values, then we can take action to change the media narrative about black voters in the primary, tip the scales in favor of our candidate, and reinforce our political power.
In partnership with Black Womxn activist and community leaders, BWF will organize in-person and online meetups around the country to discuss how we can flex our political power in the primary. These events will culminate with a collective action in support of a progressive vision and candidate for the 2020 presidential election.
This project of The South is lead by Angela Peoples.
“We know our power and we understand the stakes. We aren't waiting for the Democratic party or a candidate to organize us. We are building with progressive Black community leaders to take action for progressive values and candidates.”
