Founded and led by Aimee Allison — a recognized voice in the national efforts to elevate the power of women of color — She the People is amplifying the leadership, insights, power and solutions brought by women of color across the nation. The organization is building a multiracial coalition to ensure women of color win racial justice, gender equality, and an inclusive democracy.                            

Now more than ever, women of color are critical to strengthening racial and gender justice in our troubled country. Polling and history demonstrate our commitment to a progressive solution-oriented agenda as voters, activists, and leaders. Yet women of color are underserved as a community and significantly undervalued and underrepresented at all levels of government. It’s time for that to change.                                    

Our country needs the full participation of women of color to advance new, justice-centered possibilities. Grounded in the values of love, justice and belonging, She the People is building for this transformative change led by Black, Latina, Indigenous, Muslim, Asian American and Pacific Islander women working across a national network connecting women of color to transform our democracy.

Working in strategic coalition with women of color and their organizations from around the country, She the People surfaces insights from our diverse communities to activate leadership and social change by:

  •     Charting a path towards an America redefined and inspired by women of color.
  •     Building a multiracial coalition to ensure women of color leaders, candidates, organizers, creators, and voters to win racial justice, gender equality, and inclusive democracy.
  •     Centering women of color in political conversations and decisions, with a focus on multiracial, Muslim, trans, undocumented, poor, and women with disabilities.
  •     Illuminating untold stories of our participation and power in community and national political movements and successes and then winning seats in governance and leadership.
