BFF envisions a world where all Black women, girls, and gender-expansive folks are: safe, joyful, cared for, powerful, self-determining, and thriving.

Black Feminist Future (BFF) is a member-centered organization and our members help inform our work, campaigns, and initiatives. At BFF, we’re centering leadership development, community care, and joy in order to build the political and social power that we need to win concrete changes in our lives, community, and beyond.
BFF is a political hub focused on the dynamic possibilities of galvanizing the social and political power of Black women, girls, and gender-expansive people towards liberation. We do this by building and nourishing the leadership of fierce Black feminists, fortifying aligned organizations and movements, and shifting cultural norms.

- Squad Up: We defend Black women, girls, and gender-expansive people.
The experiences of Black women, girls, and gender-expansive people are often forgotten or erased. In 2020, BFF launched Black Womxn Are Essential to circumvent this erasure by clocking the racial and gender impact of COVID on this community through a collection of data, observation, and shared understanding. The ultimate goal of collecting this data is to use this resource to inform our collective work and help us move in a more impactful manner to serve our communities.
Fractals: A Black Feminist Organizing and Movement-Building Timeline is an interactive resource spanning the 1800s to the current time, that documents the ongoing pulse of Black feminist leaders, action points, cultural moments, key terms, and social movements in the U.S.
Brittney Griner has been in Russia since February 17, and U.S. officials are waiting to bring her home. Unfortunately, the response to Brittney’s detainment from U.S. media and elected officials has been tepid, and has had relatively low media visibility. Brittney’s safe return is clearly not a priority for U.S. officials, and Black Feminist Future wants to know: Why?
