By "Trust," You Meant "Support," Right? The Importance of Investing in Black Women
When Doug Jones beat Roy Moore in Alabama’s special election last December, hashtags like #ThankBlackWomen and #TrustBlackWomen went viral, sparking a conversation about Black women’s power. Black women are trendsetters and trailblazers who routinely shape American culture and politics, but they’re still underrepresented at decision-making tables. How do we ensure “thanking” Black women means investing in them? How do we ensure “trusting” Black women means listening to them when they’re advocating for themselves and their communities? This panel of experts will explore those questions, looking at what it will take for all Black women to have access to all levels of political and social power.
