In support of #BlackHERstory Month, we’ll be posting about one current black feminist leader or organization each weekday in February. Tune in daily to learn more about black women’s history, feminism, and the reproductive justice movement!
Melanie Campbell is the President and CEO of the National Coalition on Black Civic Participation and convener of the Black Women’s Roundtable (BWR).
Campbell has been an activist for civil, youth, and women’s rights for over 20 years and is a well-known leader in the social justice movement. As convener of the BWR, Campbell unites organizations of women from many races, ethnicities and backgrounds to advocate for policies that advance women in the United States.
The BWR promotes health and wellness, economic stability, education, and empowerment of black women on a national and global scale. The BWR accomplishes its mission by educating women on the political process and leadership development to empower them to improve the quality of life for themselves and their community.
