Black Leaders Caucus

LGBTQ+ Victory Fund's Black Leaders Caucus is a community dedicated to growing the number of Black LGBTQ+ elected officials around the country.

Black LGBTQ+ Americans are severely underrepresented in public office.

In 2022, a group of LGBTQ+ Victory Fund supporters formed the Black Leaders Caucus to address this disparity by identifying, recruiting, endorsing and supporting Victory Fund’s Black LGBTQ+ candidates. The Caucus ensures Victory Fund is using its full range of resources to increase representation – like campaign trainings and support from the Victory Campaign Board – so that more Black candidates have the resources they need to win.

2022 Accomplishments of the Black Leaders Caucus

  • Raised over $20,000 for Black LGBTQ+ Victory Fund candidates 
  • Financially supported 20 candidates 
  • 51 Black endorsed candidates won in 2022
