Black Girls Vote, a voting rights organization dedicated to representing and amplifying Black women. Black Girls Vote was founded in 2015 by “Nyki” Robinson on the birthday of Shirley Chisholm, and has since registered over 22,000 people in Baltimore, Philadelphia, Atlanta, and Detroit through their “Party at the Mailbox” initiative.
Last year, Black Girls Vote published a report titled “Black Women Did That: The Need to Invest in the Civic Health of Black Women in America,” to center Black women in civic engagement and political participation. Check it out here.
