We are a coalition of Black Women throughout California connecting North, South, East, West and Central. Our goal is to amplify our powerful voice and show our collective strength in the political process as we build a bench. We are a collective of intergenerational sisters who bring a span of expertise in politics, community activism, collaboration, social justice, and beyond. Our efforts are for Black Women only as we come together in our personal capacities to stand powerfully united in support of Black Women in California. We want to make an impact for Black Women and our community.
We collaborate with other Black Women organizations that share our values to:
Elevate our voice, power, and participation to secure adequate representation and reparations
Amplify our issues and priorities that are vital to elevate Black Women
Organize and leverage our extensive talent, influence, networks, and brilliance into areas of collective alignment
Eliminate the racist and sexist attacks on Black Women and Girls
Elevate the agenda and collective power of Black Women locally and nationally
The CA Black Women's Collective was awarded funds from California to create the CA Black Women's Think Tank, with California State University at Dominguez Hills as the academic partner. The CA Black Women's Collective Empowerment Institute, a 501C3, not-for-profit organization, is the anchor entity driving this effort. For more information about this work, go to the CA Black Women's Collective Empowerment Institute page.
We believe all women can embrace who they are,
can define their future, and can change the world.
The California Black Women’s Collective serves as a vehicle to amplify the voices, expertise and issues of Black Women throughout the state. Serving as an intersectional, intergenerational, diverse table exclusively for Black Women, the Collective aims to prepare, educate, and organize our networks to eliminate the systemic and blatant racist and sexist barriers to success that Black Women experience.
The California Black Women’s Collective utilizes our shared power to ensure that Black Women are represented at every level of leadership particularly in the public sector; by building and reinforcing the bench for Black Women seeking political office and leadership opportunities; and by identifying, recruiting, and creating access to resources to empower Black Women throughout California at every level.
