In October of 1987, the original 21 members adopted the founding resolution. The objectives of the organization, according to its chair, Elizabeth Flournoy, are to educate Black women in the organizational processes and mechanics of the Democratic Party and to identify, educate, and prepare Black women for future elected and appointed Democratic Party leadership positions.
