On September 26,
Black Women’s Blueprint hosted
the fourth annual March for Black Women.
following a grand jury’s decision not to charge
the Louisville police officers who fatally shot
26-year-old Breonna Taylor in her bed.
Black Women’s Blueprint (BWB) is a nonprofit organization
that focuses specifically on fighting for social, political
and economic equality for Black women and girls.
BWB said in a press release that “with the 2020
election on the horizon it’s more important than
ever” to continue promoting BWB’s mission.
This year’s march aimed to emphasize the importance of getting
out to vote and understanding how electing women of color
to public office will best serve Black women’s interests.
BWB advocates for reparations, fights for the rights
of Black trans women and denounces the continued
sexual violence made against Black women and girls.
The full event can be re-watched
on BWB’s Facebook page.
Even though the event was free, BWB is still
accepting donations to continue opening up
spaces and offering services for Black women
