ABOUT US

Black Women with Voices was established and incorporated as a Missouri nonprofit organization in July 2017.  The BWV's mission is to promote awareness, educate, and eliminate domestic and intimate partner violence within the African American community.  Our vision is to address the issue of domestic violence through collective action to build strong families and safe communities. We partner and are always seeking to establish a partnership with faith-based organizations, schools, business and other community-based organizations, men groups and social institutions so that survivors and their families holistic needs are met.  We believe that when reconciliation and restoration are possible without the further risks to safety, we will support relationship restoration and healing.

We also seek to demystify the understanding of domestic and intimate partner violence within the African American community. Incidences of Domestic and Intimate Partner Violence occurs regardless of race.

We believe that there are several factors that contribute to the root causes of domestic violence and intimate partner violence, including social and economic factors, such as mass incarceration, discrimination, and poverty.

We also believe in the Trinity; God the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.    

Established the BWV Legal Outreach Initiative

The BWV Legal Outreach Initiative is an affiliate and chapter of the Gospel Justice Initiative.  We believe everyone deserves access to justice without regards to the inability to hire a lawyer or obtain legal representation. Through our legal aid clinics, our most vulnerable citizens are able to obtain legal advice, representation, education and most of Access to Jesus.
