The National Coalition on Black Civic Participation

What We Do

6th Annual BWR Summit Event Recap

The Black Women's Roundtable (BWR) is the women and girls empowerment arm of The National Coalition on Black Civic Participation (The National Coalition/NCBCP). The BWR promotes health and wellness, economic security & sustainability, education and global empowerment as key elements of success. BWR established its Intergenerational National Policy Network in 2008, which is comprised of a diverse group of Black women civic leaders representing international, national, regional, and state-based organizations and institutions. Together, the BWR membership represents the issues and concerns of millions of Black people who live across the United States and around the world.

The BWR Summit was March 29 - April 2nd and included the release of the 2017 BWR Report 4th Edition - Black Women in the U.S., Moving Our Agenda Forward in a Post-Obama Era.

Events included a Day of Action & Hill Visits on Capitol Hill, It’s All About Community Action Day; It’s All About You Health, Healing and Inspiration Day & Mini-Expo; and Faith In Action Day.

The 2017 BWR Summit brought together a diverse and inter-generational group of over 300 Black women and girls from across the country.

The BWR Summit is a component of our BWR Healthy, Wealthy & Wise Empowerment Project. The BWR Empowerment Project focuses on amplifying the intergenerational power and voices of black women on race & gender equity, economic security & prosperity, income inequality, health, economic, educational and social issues impacting urban centers, small towns and rural communities.
