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.
BLACK WOMEN'S ROUNDTABLE
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.
