Organizing for Change

Black Women Organized for Political Action Plans To Utilize its Historical Influence to Incite Political Change in Sacramento!

2017 was deemed the year of black women in politics. It highlighted an increase of black women engaged in politics and brought national attention to the effectiveness of black women within the political realm. However, we have miles to go before we sleep.

The killing of 22-year old Stephon Clark, by the hands of Sacramento law enforcement, in our own city, not only sparked national outcry, it intensified the work of local organizations like BWOPA Sacramento. BWOPA Sacramento understands that everything that affects the quality of life in the black community is in most ways political. Therefore, BWOPA's current charge is to harness the energy within our community to dig deeper into the political process so that we can see systemic changes.

To that end, BWOPA Sacramento is currently refocusing efforts in order to be an active voice to change the face of law enforcement in Sacramento. "It will take our collective effort to elect officials who value justice for black people" said Kula Koenig, BWOPA Sacramento Chapter President. "Until we do this, we all suffer the consequences that result from injustice." This is why our chapter focuses on building political capacity.
