WE 10 Anniversary

Celebrating 10 Years of Women Engaged

When our cofounders Malika Redmond and Margaret Kargbo created the organization in 2014, they could not envision the events we would face, but were forward thinking in the strategy necessary to build power in our communities. Thanks to the years of expertise, networks, and love poured in from Malika and Margaret, Women Engaged was actualized in October 2014, with the passion to connect and build power in the community on the issues paramount to Black women, femmes, and girls. Since then our teams have been trailblazers in the movement ushering in new voters who are astute on the issues to make the decisions best for themselves and our communities. Our team situates itself in the longstanding history and traditions of grassroots organizing that have been present for Black people, before enslavement.


In celebrating 10 Years of Women Engaged, we are introducing our new branding inspired by the word Sankofa. Sankofa is the Akan word from Ghana that encapsulates how we enter this new, pivotal year. 

"Se wo were fi na wosankofa a yenkyi

which loosely translates to, "It's not taboo to go back and fetch what you missed.” 


Sankofa—to return, go, look, seek, and take—reminds us that remembering is vital to progress. WE have always focused on progressing towards a more just and equitable world. As we enter our tenth year of doing amazing work, join us this month and the rest of the year on a journey reconnecting with the histories of the movement, the stories and experiences of our past, and how we connect it to our present moment and envision a future where our full human rights are actualized.
