The spirit of unity among Black women in politics today is one that has also translated to the people of the communities that our Black women political leaders serve.

In addition to helping to drive voters to the polls during crucial election seasons, seeing these women in positions of power support each other while simultaneously using their influential platforms to effect change in a major way is also a testament to their commitment to leading by example.

We recently got the opportunity to sit down with Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms and she had much to say about the spirit of sisterhood we’re seeing among the Black women who are changing the political landscape today, as well as some of the changes she’s been able to make since taking office.

Check out the video above to hear what she had to say.
