Despite representing a significant political constituency and large consumer base, Black women remain one of the most underrepresented groups in elected office today. The Status of American Women in Politics, a forthcoming report update from Higher Heights, reiterates this discrepancy, focusing on Black women’s candidacies at the state and federal level, analyzing state/regional differences, candidate status, and electoral outcomes.
 
The Brennan Center for Justice and Higher Heights discussed the state of representation for and by Black women in American politics today. Experts and insiders examined how underrepresented voices can make themselves heard through grassroots movements, political action, and civic engagement, ensuring that our democracy is truly and cohesively representative of the people being governed.
