State of Black Women
Sistallect, Inc. in partnership with Sierra Health Foundation and with a coalition of Black Women leaders took on the task to look at equity for Black Women and Girls in California. This effort represents the first time this type of collective, conscious effort has been done in the state. Although Women of Color are progressing as a whole, Black Women in California are more likely to be single breadwinners, live in poverty and face significant barriers in regards to pathways to success economically, socially and professionally.
Black women across the country are joining together to create a virtually donation pool to establish a Giving Circle to impact true and meaningful change particularly for Black women and girls. As part of this coalition of Black Women, we want to target organizations that directly provide needed support. Our sister circle of giving will employ our social economic power to give to organizations. Our Call to Action is to have Black women donate directly to selected organizations based on the giving campaign in order to provide immediate and real time support. We are also encouraging our sister friends to post this initiative on their social media channels and share with their networks and with the hashtag #BlackWomenGive.
