HU Student Organizations

Black Girls Vote

"​​​​​​​Black Girls Vote Inc. is a grassroots, national, nonpartisan, nonprofit organization with an objective of engaging, educating, and empowering black women, particularly those 18-25 years old, to activate their voice by utilizing their vote. We believe our vote is our voice. We are dedicated to the engagement, education, and empowerment of collegiate students and our local community through the electoral process. Following social outcry after the death of Freddie Gray, Nykidra “Nyki” Robinson launched Black Girls Vote in Baltimore, Maryland. BGV was launched on November 30, 2015, the birthday of Shirley Chisholm, at Western High School. And just as Shirley Chisholm, she sought to bring change through advocacy, outreach, and building our strength in numbers – which reflects the core of our purpose of Black Girls Vote."
