The Equity Alliance unapologetically
builds independent Black
political AND economic power.

We educate, empower, and mobilize black people to take action and keep our government in check.

Based in Tennessee, we are a statewide 501(c)(3) nonpartisan and non-profit organization and unrelenting force that advocates for equitable opportunities and systems that improve the quality of life for Black people. Authenticity and innovation fuel our approach to equip citizens with tools and strategies to fully participate in civic processes and champion solutions to issues that affect their daily lives.

Founded in 2016, The Equity Alliance is led by co-executive directors and co-founders Charlane Oliver and Tequila Johnson. These democratic entrepreneurs understood from the organization’s inception that voting is the key that unlocks the door to political, economic, and all other forms of power that have been stolen, tainted, and withheld from Black people. Together, we’re coming for it all!
