Claiming a Seat at the Table: A Conversation with Kimberly Peeler-Allen

Recorded in June 2020

Juneteenth is the oldest nationally celebrated commemoration of the ending of slavery in the United States. Inherent to freedom in America is the opportunity and ability to participate in democracy. The power structure and White society at large that had been slow to grant Black women the right to vote continues to make it difficult and dangerous for Black women to access leadership in elected office.

As a country, we will not achieve our greatest policies without the voices of Black women.

On Juneteenth 2020, in a conversation with She Should Run’s CEO, Erin Loos Cutraro, Kimberly Peeler-Allen, Co-founder of Higher Heights and Visiting Practitioner, Center for American Women and Politics, Rutgers University, shared about her experiences building the political power and leadership of Black women.
