About the Campaign

President, Barbara A. Perkins, Co-Founder of the International Black Women’s Public Policy Institute announced at the UN CSW 65 Conference on March 16th, 2021, the launching of a major capital campaign by IBWPPI to build the first Embassy for Black Women globally. The vision is to design and construct a magnificent building in our nation’s capital or Atlanta, GA where Black Women from across the world would be welcomed to take a Seat at the Table. This 3 to 5-year campaign began with a call for the first 100 women to become Seed Growers by donating $1000 before the end of 2021.

A couple of months ago, Ms. Perkins was giving a speech during International Women’s Day at the invitation of the National Women’s Advisory Council of The Bahamas. The planned address did not include anything about the Black Women’s Embassy; however, it was there that she made the first public announcement. Immediately following that televised announcement, she made a call to the Board of Directors of the International Black Women’s Public Policy Institute, under whose governance the Embassy Project will be built. They are all IN.

The Black Women’s Embassy will be built in Atlanta, Georgia, the cradle of the civil rights movement or Washington, D.C., the gateway of power. It will be an unmistakable symbol of Black Women’s contributions to humanity. It would be in honor of our foremothers, who carried, nurtured, and prayed over so many dreams deferred. This symbol of beauty would connect our rich past with our hopeful future. In solidarity, we are confident that this big dream is realizable.

“If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.”

This dream is asking us to go further than we have ever gone before. This dream is about our collective legacy for generations to come. Regardless of where little black girls are in the world, this dream includes them. Our daughters, grand-daughters, sisters, nieces, and goddaughters will know that we were thinking of them with this big dream.

The plan is built on a simple principle “When you learn, teach. When you get, give.” Dr. Maya Angelou. IBWPPI is asking you to do both. Sow a seed of $1,000 dollars first, and then encourage another to do the same. We are asking 100 women such as yourself to sow the first $100,000 dollars for this project. Doing this says, you see the vision and will commit to making it a reality. The Seed Growers will always be a special group in the center of all that will happen in the Black Women’s Embassy.

  • More information to come.
