Create a world where the voices of Black women are heard, respected, and valued.


Historically, despite being poorly represented and protected, Black women lead the way in challenging our democracy to reduce the violence of all forms against Black and Brown communities.

Sustain Equity Group (SEG) is committed to creating equitable opportunities and outcomes for Black women and girls from the community level on the frontlines of the fight against violence and those working behind the scenes within agencies and organizations. But, we can’t do this alone! So, please show your support by joining us NOW!

The Problem

Although violence profoundly impacts Black women and their families, Black women and girls who operate closer to the problems and solutions are often excluded from critical conversations that directly affect them. Black women are underrepresented as leaders in positions of power within the violence prevention movement.

The Opportunities

Sustain Equity Group provides unique opportunities to develop and elevate the voices of Black women and girls to support their influence in violence prevention efforts through our national violence prevention leadership development institute and networking opportunities.

The Strategy

Provide trauma-informed training, mentoring, and networking opportunities to amplify the voices of Black women and girls to influence the policies that impact them and provide data-driven solutions and advance research on public health, public safety, and trauma care to lessen violence, suicide, and gun violence.
