Black Women's Blueprint operates as a reduced hierarchical member organization. Our organization strives to operate with equally distributed power regardless of titles, and ensures decision-making power by our member base, which includes male-identified individuals, youth, women and gender-fluid persons across a vareity of ethnicities. The organization’s eight board of directors and nearly 180 volunteers on the advisory board are reflective of the culturally specific community that this project wishes to serve.

OUR TEAM

BWB has made bold staffing moves to take its last mandate of reconciliation and healing to the next level. In 2020 Our Executive Directorship transitioned to a Co-Executive Directorship model, shared by Farah Tanis and Sevonna Brown each bringing their unique skills in the fields of reproductive health, integrative medicine for survivors, restorative justice, and peace building to their leadership roles.
