About BGV

Black Girls Vote (BGV) is a grassroots, nonpartisan organization created to represent the national and international concerns of women of color.

We seek to uplift and empower communities of color by educating and inspiring Women of Color to understand the public policy decisions affecting their families and communities.

We are dedicated to using our collective voice to transform areas where bias has the most profound impact on the lives of women of color.

BGV continues to cultivate a community of well-informed citizens in underserved communities to support policies that align with BGV’s strategic aims to:

– Advance Education
– Advance Economic Development
– Advance Quality Health care and improve outcomes

About BGV Collegiate

The Black Girls Vote Collegiate Program inspires student leaders by engaging their student body through peer-to-peer education on the electoral process and cultivating BGV’s mission, vision, and values on their campus. Our Collegiate members receive opportunities to refine public speaking and interpersonal skills through various campus outreach events while leading and creating impactful projects and programs specific to their community, local, and state government. We know our vote is our voice and we encourage black women to use our collective voice to support policies that benefit our communities and families.

Our Focus

The BGV Collegiate members play an important role in and out of the community they are located in. Below are four pillars that are core to each of our collegiate chapters as they engage students in contributing to the BGV mission.

Community Service

BGV Collegiate Chapters identify and address the needs in their local communities through volunteer efforts, voter engagement activities, and community-based initiatives that support the core values of Black Girls Vote.

Student Engagement

BGV Collegiate Chapters offer a variety of activities, events, and resources designed to foster community and belonging among students. In addition, they strive to create a vibrant and supportive campus culture that promotes academic success and personal development.

Voter Education

BGV Collegiate Chapters register and train Black women (and others) to vote. In addition, they seek to inform the community on why it is important to engage in the electoral process and educate their members and the public on candidates, policies, and issues that may impact them and their families.

Professional Development

BGV Collegiate Chapters prepare students for successful careers and leadership positions by providing them with a variety of resources (e.g., internships, mentorships, training sessions) and opportunities to develop key skills and competencies.

Meet the National Collegiate Committee

Now that you know who we are and our focus, we would like to introduce some of the committee members volunteering their time behind the scenes to support the creation and ongoing facilitation needs of each collegiate chapter. The impact we make will not be possible without these hardworking ladies.
