Black women have long been relentless in their fight for justice, equality, and the betterment of communities world-wide. We are warriors for all things right and righteous, and have never missed an opportunity to take a stand for change that could improve the quality of life for our families and the world around us.
It’s no secret that Black women are a major key to success in ALL elections.
We sacrifice our time, make sure our neighbors, family members, and members of our social circles are registered to vote and have a plan to vote in each election. We help those who need rides, secure rides to the polls, donate to candidate accounts, and volunteer to canvass for candidates whose platforms are aligned with issues that matter to us. The purpose of this article is plain, and simple:

You should consider acquiring a seat at one of these tables. The time to prepare for upcoming elections is NOW!
