Created in 2011, Higher Heights for America is a national 501(c)(4) organization focused on inspiring Black women to be change agents by harnessing their collective power and influence to eliminate the inequities in public education, health and economic opportunities for Black women, their families and communities across the United States. Through our programs, we are galvanizing the organizing and mobilizing political power of Black women; giving them the tools to effectively engage, advocate and lead. Higher Heights for America will:
- Reconfigure the make up of decision making tables to include Black women from across the socio-economic spectrums at all levels.
- Elevate Black women’s voices to shape and advance progressive policies and politics.
- Foster creative collaboration across constituencies and issues ensuring that race/gender equity and inclusion are incorporated in ongoing progressive based building efforts, issue-based advocacy campaigns, and in voter engagement campaigns and electoral strategies.
