“In Spring 2019, Grantmakers for Girls of Color issued a call to action to step forward and take charge of advancing research that centers the voices and experiences of girls of color. With the release of their seminal report Start from the Ground Up: Increasing Support for Girls of Color, Grantmakers for Girls of Color provided a framework to support girls of color in our communities.  I Be Black Girl in collaboration with University Nebraska at Omaha STEPs is answering that call by conducting localized research that aims to:

  • Define what is meant by “Black women and girls” (BWGs) and examine the tensions in those definitions
  • Explore the everyday structural barriers as described by BWGs
  • Map challenges faced by and budding opportunities for those supporting BWGs on the ground
  • Inform recommendations for service providers, funders, and policy advocates aspiring to develop increased intentional support for BWGs”

Join us to learn more about this study’s findings and how it impacts our local community! I Be Black Girl is a collective that creates space for Black identifying women and girls to grow, connect and give. To learn more and donate to I Be Black Girl please click here!
