A new poll took a look at Black women's top issues heading into the 2024 election.


  • 61% of Black women are dissatisfied with the direction of the country especially 

  • “It is startling to me, for example, how many women say that they experience sexism or racism on a fairly frequent basis, and then you pile on top of that this sense of falling behind economically. … They are challenged on all sides in their ability to thrive,” pollster Cornell Belcher told The Hill.

  • Since 2021, Black women report an 8% increase in experiencing racism, and a 12% increase in experiencing sexism. 

  • Reducing gun violence, protecting reproductive freedom including abortion rights, and standing up against racism and discrimination make up Black women’s top three issues.

  • Belcher said Black women have indicated that they do not feel heard, and that federal legislators are too busy fighting amongst themselves to address the issues that constituents care about the most. 

“How important is the Black vote to Democrats? They’re not winning without it,” Belcher said.

But the survey also identified policies Black women want to see candidates take a stance on to show that they are centering their demographic.

The article notes that Democrats still have time to engage Black women BUT I encourage all of us to make it known to our elected leaders that we are tired and done with being "engaged" as an afterthought while they ignore us since their first day in the office. 

I will say, both parties have been determined to outdo one another in a game of "who can be more committed to ignoring the voices of women and girls"?  

Disappointing. Infuriating. and .....Dangerous.
