About the Founder
The Philadelphia Black Women’s March is organized by India Fenner, a Philadelphia native and Temple University Graduate. While studying Africology and Political Science, India participated in protests and movements seeking justice for marginalized groups within the United States. India did not feel represented in these movements and saw the efforts of black women on the frontlines continually erased. India’s passion for activism and representation led her to organize the first Philadelphia Black Women’s March in 2017.Support the March
From 2017 to 2019, the March has unified over 300 black women and girls in impactful protest and has garnered over $3,500 in support from local organizations, politicians and community leaders.
To ensure this year's march is a success, we need your support. Help us reach our fundraising goal of $2,500 by donating to our Go Fund Me page.2021 March Sponsors
