Public Policy & Advocacy
The Public Policy and Advocacy Committee is committed to drive meaningful change in our communities and the world, by influencing public polices that benefit and strengthen Black women and girls.
We serve as a source of information regarding current legislative, regulatory and economic issues. We advocate for Black women and girls through local, state, and national initiatives, and forge strategic alliances that promote NCBW’s national and international agendas of leadership development and gender equity, in the areas of health, education and economic empowerment.
We also undertake voter education and registration; we are involved in ensuring that in the Bay Area, there is a complete count for the 2020 U.S. census. Our letter-writing campaigns, meetings with legislators, partnerships with community organizations, participation in State and National legislative days, testimonies at city, county and school board meetings, candidate forums, voter registration efforts, and other activities, keep us involved with real issues in real-time.
Advocacy is the cornerstone and pulse point of the National Coalition of 100 Black Women.
