Welcome to the Black Women in Politics Meetup group. This is a group of local women involved in or interested in politics; these are women interested in either running for political office, learning more about the electorate process, or socializing regarding issues relevant to Black women. 97 percent of Black women voted for Obama in the 2008 US presidential election. As a group we represent a strong voting bloc. Activities of the meetup include socials, meets with local politicians, attending political events, seminars on the electorate political process, 'meet the candidate' meetups, policy discussions, and sessions on How to Run for Office, How to develop Campaign Finances,.... basically were a group of kool women who make great things happen for our selves and communities and nation and have fun supporting eachother while doing it.
