Who We Are

A Global Movement

The International Black Women’s Congress is comprised of women of African descent from all walks of life all around the world.

We understand the benefit of a network system that exists at the local, national and international levels. Our membersĀ feel that it is time for women of African descent to organize around our own needs and address our problems from an African-centered perspective.

Are you ready to join this global movement? We can’t wait to welcome you! Join us today.


Our Mission

Empower Women!

We pledge to be models of what African womanhood should be: strong, relentless, caring, concerned, clear-minded, brilliant, powerful and loving. Let us be guardians of each other’s pledge.


Make Change

Build on History

Let us uphold people, bring forth a new time, shape our own history and work without pause until the very cosmos finds itself at end. Let our voices, now and forevermore be heard.


Impact the World

Use your power!

To the sister who never thought of bowing to the weight that Black women have carried for so long, we collectively say:

“Here we stand willingly taking that which you have bequeathed us.”
