The Black Women’s Policy Center is dedicated to Black women of all ages, and we feel that it is necessary to make sure our younger generations are as involved in breaking down barriers as any other group. We aim to create a truly safe space for our youth to feel empowered and informed about civic engagement in their prospective communities, all while building tribes among each other to foster relationships that can be used in coalition building. We will be coming together to not only identify systemic issues but to build an action plan to bring about systems change. Through policy and advocacy, we will Step Up and provide the tools necessary for our young women to confidently be centered at the tables we know they should have always been at.
Black girls are the future.

Some of our community’s youngest members have taken the initiative to
STEP UP and LEAD!
Our dedicated council of 12 young Black women has created a community survey for Black women ages 18-24 years old.
The goal is to engage with their peers on a more intimate basis to hear directly from their peers about the challenges they face as young Black women in the Greater Pittsburgh region. The results of the survey will determine the policy priorities and help shape strategy.
Council is developing a survey to hear the voices of young black women ages 18-24, if you're interested in taking the survey provide your email below.
Upon survey completion, you may be invited to attend one of our listening sessions if you want your voice to be heard, share your
opinion and perspective, and give insight into a greater cause.
