The initiative is sending a message that Black women have political power with over 70% of Black women registered voters voting in the last election that they should also be represented in the senate and other areas of politics.

Some notable women that took their seats were,  Former Massachusetts First Lady of Massachusetts – Diane Patrick, Kaidi Grant, Collette Phillips, Malia Lazu, Former Senator Dianne Wilkerson and Alicia Canaday Adamson, and Senator Linda Dorcena Forry
