Burgess COMMENTARY

Peter Burgess

NCBCP Black Women's Roundtable

The Black Women’s Roundtable (BWR) is an intergenerational civic engagement network of the National Coalition on Black Civic Participation. At the forefront of championing just and equitable public policy on behalf of Black women, BWR promotes their health and wellness, economic security, education and global empowerment as key elements for success.

Who We Are

BWR comprises a diverse group of Black women civic leaders of international, national, regional and state-based organizations and institutions. Together, the BWR membership represents the issues and concerns of millions of Americans and families who live across the United States and around the world.

What We Do

BWR seeks to bring together women representing diverse views and interests within the Black and community around the theme of women’s advancement with a particular focus on motivating Black women to engage in all levels of civil society.

Through public policy forums, leadership training, and civic engagement and issue education campaigns, BWR provides women with a voice and the skills training to use the political process to improve the quality of life for themselves and their communities. Our programs include:

  • Outcomes-based projects to increase the civic engagement, base-building and voter empowerment of Black women;

  • Education on the political process, leadership development, and preparation of young Black women interested in running for public office; and

  • Engagement of women in policy discussions to ensure significant impact of women voters in the political process.

Get Involved

BWR has outlined specific policy priorities to ensure the educational advancement, economic security, health and wellness, education and global empowerment of women, with a special emphasis on Black women and girls. Learn more about these priorities, BWR initiatives and how you can get involved. Click here to view the Black Women's Roundtable Policy Statement.

TrueValueMetrics (TVM) is an Open Source / Open Knowledge initiative. It has been funded by family and friends plus donations from well wishers who understand the importance of accountability and getting the management metrics right. TVM is a 'big idea' that has the potential to be a game changer leveling the playing field so the wealth and power is shared on a more reasonable basis between people who work for a living and those that own the economy and the levers of power. In order to be effective, it cannot be funded in the conventional way with a for profit business plan, but absolutely must remain an open access initiative.
WE WANT TO MAINTAIN AN OPEN KNOWLEDGE MODEL
A MODEST DONATION WILL HELP MAKE THAT HAPPEN
