Join us in New Orleans, LA, February 21 – 24, 2019.

Black women are still reclaiming our time and activating our political power as we always have at critical moments throughout our history.  In the most recent midterm elections, black women had impressive wins  black women voters, once again, turned out in record numbers! For too long, the generational concerns of black women and girls continue to be under-prioritized and ignored–often lumped into broader conversations without the necessary focus from decision-makers.   The Power Rising Summit will provide black women a space to turn power into action and create a strategic, actionable agenda to be implemented in our communities and nationally! The agenda created at the Power Rising Summit will leverage our social, political, professional, cultural,  and economic power for the betterment of ourselves, our families, our communities, and our future.
