She the People is the leading race, gender, and politics network and initiative that advances our democracy by calling women of color fully into their fierce and loving leadership and collective power. She the People elevates and amplifies the voices and power of women of color in our role in forging an inclusive, multiracial coalition that will transform U.S. democracy. Founded and led by Aimee Allison, President of Democracy in Color, She the People is telling a new national story that rightly narrates women of color as the drivers of a new progressive political and cultural era.

She the People kicked off a national conversation with its inaugural She the People Summit on September 20, 2018 in San Francisco. The historic summit featured the nation’s most exciting progressive women of color leaders on the ballot, championing movements, and driving winning political strategy.
