This Sojourner Truth Legacy Project Virtual Program will highlight the amazing work of Black women who have dedicated their career to eliminating systemic barriers and ensuring equity for all.

 

In January 2021, the Congressional Black Caucus welcomed three dynamic new women into their organization while saying farewell to a former member as she made history as the first Black and South-Asian woman to take office as the Vice President of the United States. This historic year takes place after a series of hardships like the coronavirus pandemic, the unjust deaths of Breonna Taylor and George Floyd along with extreme economic instability. It was through the leadership of Black women in Congress, state governments and in our community were we able to organize and fight against systemic discriminations that have long marginalized our community.
