To describe Black Women's Blueprint (BWB) is an "important" organization would be not only an understatement but, perhaps, a misnomer. BWB is an INDISPENSABLE organization. Black Women's Blueprint social justice advocacy and community organizing is unique and sucessful due in large part to the fact that issues relating to race, gender, sexual orientation, socio-economics and politics are understood to be instrinsically linked. Therefore, the struggle for racial, gender and economic empowerment and equality can never be mutally exclusive. BWB is one of few organizations (if not the only in NYC) whose work reflects the reality of the lives of Black women, men and families in this way. I know this is one of the main reasons BWB has been able to steadily attract and engage such a large and diverse group of members and supporters. Far from your average civil and human rights organization Black Women's Blueprint's mission and work is innovate and effective. BWB engages in progessive movement building from the community level to the pursuit of policy changes.
