After the death of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor, powerful black women came together to create a community of people ready for change. Continuing off the momentum our organization made with #BirthdayforBreonna on June 6th at Pan Pacific, we’ve decided to fulfill our  lifelong dream of starting a non-profit,  ‘Black Women Lead.’ (BWL)

Black women have lead this country since the beginning and we want to amplify more black leadership in this moment. BWL will be at the forefront of a human rights movement and will continue to speak out against murders committed by police, campaign against violence, systemic racism, and advocate anti-racist policy, defunding the police, investing in communities and will call for the prosecution of killer cops.

BWL is committed to meeting this moment with the urgency and outrage it requires. We will hold rallies, protests, donate to other organizations and activists,  and put money into communities directly. This money will help Shannon start the nonprofit from the ground up and support herself and the community. We are here to put in the work. Let’s get started!
