19 States Have Zero Black Women in the State Senate

Black women’s political participation keeps our democracy thriving. However, Black women face unique barriers to running and winning, but remain one of the country's most powerful voting blocs.

We need more Black women in the state senate, where issues from jobs to voting rights to women’s health are being legislated. We must support and call more Black women into our statehouses.

RUN/51 is Vote Run Lead’s solution to achieving reflective democracies in America’s statehouses.

Nominate yourself, or another formidable Black woman, and you'll receive a 10-week plan to run a successful campaign for the House or Senate in your state, get access to coaches who have won legislative races, and join a network of your peers.
