ABout black womxn united

(her)story of bwu

Black Womxn United started in 2017 by three courageous black women: Imani Mitchell, Autumn Asters, and Elika Bernard.  From that first meeting held we created the first-ever black womxn’s march. And from that conceptual idea came Black Womxn United. Because of the massive response of need, it became more than we could have ever imagined. We are so glad we stood our ground on centering Black womxn. Since then, BWU has reached hundreds of thousands and lifted up the voices of Black womxn around the globe.

After a month of quick planning and hard work, they created an unprecedented event -- 

the first Black Womxn's March in Sacramento, California.
