Preventing Child Sexual Abuse

Together, we can bring child sexual abuse out of the shadows and train the entire community to prevent and intervene in the sexual exploitation of Black youth.


Economic Justice

Taking care of one another and our families means transcending the transactional relationships of capitalism. We pool the resources we receive to build alternative barter models for meeting our needs and help Black women pursue their professional goals through non-traditional employment opportunities.


Criminal Justice

Sustaining collective action and fighting back against police brutality and the all-too-common state-sponsored abuse of incarcerated Black women are top priorities for us, and should be a cornerstone of every single movement for racial and gender justice.



We work to end rape/sexual assault in Black communities and on Historically Black College and University (HBCU) campuses.

Become Volunteer

We believe that economic equality is the unfinished business of the civil rights struggle.

We are organizing against racialized and sexualized criminal justice violence as it specifically impacts women of color.
