Supporting Ilhan Omar and Other Black Women in Office

Getting more Black women elected to office is critical for (FINALLY) Making America Great, but we can't stop there.  

Black women need our support while they are legislating!

This week, Movement for Black Lives (M4BL) brought hundreds of Black women together in Washington, DC to stand in solidarity with Rep. Ilhan Omar, who has been viciously targeted by Trump. 

Kelly was there. She learned about a new organization called Network of Elected Women (NEW) that is looking to support women in office.

Happy Mothering Day!

Speaking of supporting and protecting Black women, Mother's Day is May 12th and we're SO excited to celebrate!
