Our Civic Engagement initiatives support Voter Education with the goal of increasing the electoral and political power of Black women through voter education, registration, and outreach during and between elections. Initiatives include:

  • Door-to-door canvassing
  • COVID projects
  • Redistricting Outreach
  • 501c4 State and Local policy

Civic Engagement Events

Black Women for Wellness launched the Civic Engagement Voting Rules Everything Around Me (VREAM) campaign in 2012 to build the electoral power of black women. BWW is not only making sure Black women get to the polls, but that we also hold elected officials accountable to our communities.

Our Civic Engagement team works during every election cycle to ensure that the issues that disproportionately affect our communities are spotlighted and amplified.

The purpose of our campaigns are to provide voter education and registration resources to residences in LA County. The campaign also examined voter awareness and likelihood of participating in the Primary Election.

Civic Engagement Highlights:

  • Educated voters and got out the vote around the AD 62 Special Election in April 2022 and the Primary Election in June 2022.

  • Reached out to 27,000+ residents to provide information on how to stay safe and healthy during the COVID pandemic.

  • Informed and recruited our communities in support of Environmental Justice topics such as the phase out of the Inglewood Oil Fields and Water Quality/Usage in LA County.

  • Recruited residents to participate in the California Black Power Network Statewide and Regional Reparations Listening Sessions.

  • Phoned 64,000+ voters.

  • Texted 643,000+ voters.

  • Knocked on 23,000+ doors.

  • Made 3,000+ new contacts.

  • At least 83.7% of contacts were at least somewhat aware of the primary elections.

  • 48% of contacts confirmed they would be voting by mail.

Black women are the country’s most consistent voters but that hasn’t fully materialized into building political power. In the last five presidential elections, Black women voted at or above 60 percent. We turnout!

Now, it’s time for us to continue the movement, mobilize, and take action. Let’s continue the work to improve these numbers and uplift Black women and girls.
