07 Apr Rock Stars – Raising The States
Black women have always been a force for democratic change, often underresourced but always weaving threads of determination into whole cloth. They confront the status quo and rock the concept of business-as-usual with grit, imagination and tenacity.
SRPUnerased is proud to partner with the Black Women’s Roundtable to spotlight change agents on the ground across seven states leading civic engagement and electoral wins that impact where people live and thrive.
We salute these Rock Stars who are leading the charge in organizing, civic engagement and ground power.

“We cannot just show up for the presidential election cycle. We need to show up for the school board, mayors and other state races, because they can kill us before we ever get to the presidential election.”
Regional Administrator for the Southern Rural Black Women’s Initiative for Economic & Social Justice (SRBWI)
“The greatest success that I’ve seen in my work in the rural south beyond electoral results, has been the reaction and commitment of young Black women to save America from itself.”
