The Story


Peace, 

My name is Niecee X founder of Black Women's Defense League. 

Thank you for viewing this campaign we are coming to you because we are currently in great need of your assistance to continue our much-needed work.

BWDL does not receive any government funding or participate in state sanctioned programs in order to maintain separation from this system's problematic political practices that limit the scope of issues we can address and resist.

Therefore, we rely immensely on fundraising efforts, the generosity of our sponsors and beautiful people like you! 

Over this summer we have presented forums, training workshops, and outreach on Sex Trafficking to educate our community here in Texas which is second in the nation for this issue that affects thousands of young girls and women each day.  We are working in community solidarity to provide resources and education to women and girls on the streets and at risk.  We need you to continue advocacy work in these personal cases and continued support of women escaping abusive environments. 

In addition to this, we host bi-weekly political education classes, workshops and events to spark conversations and ACTION on various topics relating to the health of our community politically, mentally, physically and emotionally. We must pay for the location rental fees, light refreshments, and materials used during each of these events that are free to the public. 

We are absolutely dedicated to being a resource for our communities and are putting all of our efforts forth to continue offering our time energy and talents in doing so but we need your help.

As we continue to work tirelessly to facilitate programs that serve the needs of marginalized people I can assure you nothing is more disheartening than not being able to follow through due to financial inhibitions.  Please, give anything you can and please share this link with your friends and family.  

Thank You 

With Love From Black Women's Defense League

We are so grateful for the support thus far. 
Check out our women's entrepreneurship brunch over the weekend. It was great and thanks to you we were able to sponsor 5 women's attendance free of charge! We made dream boards, got consultations and advice from established black women business owners and even had a little sister fun! 

Thank you again for your contributions
