Who We Are

The Black Women's Roundtable (BWR) is an intergenerational civic engagement network of the National Coalition on Black Civic Participation. At the forefront of championing just and equitable public policy on behalf of Black women, BWR promotes their health and wellness, economic security, education and global empowerment as key elements for success. 



Why We Do It

BWR seeks to bring together women representing diverse views and interests within the Black and community around the theme of women's advancement with a particular focus on motivating Black women to engage in all levels of civil society.  Through public policy forums, leadership training, and civic engagement and issue education campaigns, BWR provides women with a voice and the skills training to use the political process to improve the quality of life for themselves and their communities


Our programs include:

Outcomes-based projects to increase the civic engagement, base-building and voter empowerment of Black women:

  • Education on the political process, leadership development, and preparation of young Black women interested in running for public office; and

  • Engagement of women in policy discussions to ensure significant impact of women voters in the political process.



The women and at-risk-youth in the communities we serve would be missing a viable component to encourage, socialize and constructively support each other and support issues that they are plagued with in our present day society.  Our programs allow a platform for creative expressions, Q&A in a professional and controlled environment.  Our platform provides the access for our participants the opportunity to voice their concerns, dreams and visions.


We pledge to always promote sisterly love to all that need this type of support and encouragement through our sisterhood.  We pledge through our sisterhood to uplift and encourage each other always and never belittle or mistreat a fellow sister.
We pledge through our sisterhood to always maintain a non judging zone where all women can feel free to express themselves without fear of being prejudged.
We pledge through our sisterhood to be there for other women just like us to show them that they are not alone.  We felt your same pain and shed those same tears and we’ve been hurt and disappointed too.
We pledge through our sisterhood to be honest and always keep it real in order to prevent other women from making our same mistakes, and to give them other options out of their situation, and give them love and hope in a hopeless situation
We pledge through our sisterhood to be there for other women and girls like us that need this sisterly love and help.  Our sisterhood is dedicated in helping and empowering women by leadership training, civic engagement and educational components within our community. 
Together we can achieve this by empowering one sister at a time!
