The Progress Center for Black Women is the legacy I want to build for the greater Dane County area, first. It brings most of my work under one roof, quite literally, and represents a long-term commitment toward the progress of Black women and families.
The Center opened its doors to its temporary home in November 2018 and is currently fundraising to create the permanent building. The center offers unique programming and a space where Black women and their families can access resources, attend events and forge connections that will foster personal transformation, eventually transforming the community as a whole.
The permanent center will grow to house a computer lab for access and learning, a community kitchen for cooking lessons and experimenting, a library and bookstore to offer business resources as well leisure reading with a focus on Black authors and a community room where community members can test out their poetry, plays or other theatrical endeavors.
Our space space is comfortable, approachable and allows the community to have a sense of ownership of the space.
