We support the political power of Black women by amplifying their voices on issues important to the Black community.
Our strength is not only our vote and our relationships with the Black community, but in our collective development and support of Black Women leadership. Our strategy is to amplify Black women’s voices; advance Black women’s political leadership; and expand Black women’s opportunities.
- We support issues and policy that affect the well-being of Black women, their families and communities of African descent and economically disadvantaged communities.
- We provide education about issues, candidates for political office and the political process.
- We promote the civic engagement and participation and community leadership of women of African descent and the diaspora in America.
- We engage and organize our community locally, nationally and online to stand for the issues, policies and people that impact the lives of Black women and their families.
Help Us Document Their Experiences.
Sisters Lead Sister Vote (SLSV) is preparing for the 2022 & 2024 Federal Elections. In doing so, SLSV is currently conducting research to document the experience and needs of Black woman candidates and to document the historic leadership of Black women in the political space. Through this research, SLSV will document and share the unique needs of Black women candidates to better equip the organizations, parties and people, who seek to support them. This research will also aid Black women who are considering, planning, or running for office.
Our goal is the collection of 200 or more electronic surveys from Black women who ran for office in 2020. We will also interview 20 or more 2020 Black women candidates in focus groups. SLSV will prepare and release a report of the research findings which will be presented anonymously and in the aggregate. We hope these findings will help the organizations, parties and people who support Black women’s political leadership.
