We Advocate as Humanitarians, Philanthropists, and Policy Makers
What We Do
Our organization is involved in numerous projects...
The International Black Women’s Public Policy Institute, (IBWPPI) was established in 2009 in Washington, D.C. We are a policy, humanitarian and philanthropic organization governed by 18 women who represent 6 countries and 11 major cities across the United States.
We were created to be a policy organization that would support and create public policies to enhance the lives of Black women globally. As the only global public policy institute dedicated to, founded by, and led by Black women, we aim to evaluate the impact of current national and international public policy; and support new policies that will address significant threats and disparities to the safety and well-being of Black women, their families, and communities.
IBWPPI policy agenda includes the Eradication of Violence, Human Sex Trafficking, Black women’s Health and Wellness, Economic Security, and Education.
For the past seven years, IBWPPI has worked with women in Ghana and South Africa to establish meaningful and mutually beneficial partnerships. We have launched projects in Kumasi, with Bridge to Africa Connection Inc., and have adopted schools, a village, and a new birthing clinic. These projects are literally saving lives and providing opportunities for women and girls that are life-changing.
