Black Women’s Blueprint

Black Women’s Blueprint is an organization committed to amplifying the voices of women of African descent in all their diversity, Black Women’s Blueprint provides the personal and political spaces as well as the resources needed for women to engage in intersectional advocacy at the grassroots and societal level.

Our projects provide the tools for community members to hold each other as well as policy-makers, elected officials, and community leaders accountable for the personal, social and economic rights of Black women and girls. Our focus on discovery, documentation and public education in addition to the pursuit of concrete policy change are key strategies for claiming gender, race, and economic equity as civil and human rights for Black women who bear the bulk of sexual violence and the poverty burden in our communities.

As a technical assistance provider for the Office on Violence Against Women’s Campus TA Project BWBP/SCESA provide support in the following areas:

  • Working with HBCU’s to identify and implement culturally relevant models to address violence against women
  • Work with other technical assistance providers in addressing the needs of communities of color
  • Provide cultural capacity building strategies to universities and colleges.
The National Organization of Sisters of Color Ending Sexual Violence

The National Organization of Sisters of Color Ending Sexual Assault (SCESA) was established for Women of Color across the country engaged in the Anti-Sexual Assault Movement. We were founded in sisterhood and flourish through community as we continue to address multiple layers of discrimination faced by Women of Color and Communities of Color.

Our strong desire to reclaim our leadership, ensure inclusion of our experiences in systems-wide responses, and establish social change initiatives related to sexual assault on a state, territory, and national level is what makes SCESA a true agent of change.
