Coco Coalition Celebrates 5 years of Social Impact

Coco Coalition Celebrates 5 years of Social Impact


Established in 2018, Coco Coalition, lovingly called Coco, is a social enterprise dedicated to curating holistic, safe, and empowering opportunities for women of the African Diaspora to connect, grow and thrive. The organization's mission is to improve the quality of life for Black women by providing mental health programming, services, and resources. Coco Coalition's flagship headquarters is in the San Francisco Bay Area with deep ties in the community.

Coco grew from the demand created by the International Black & Beautiful Women's Brunch (BBWB) established in 2015. By the end of 2018, BBWB touched over 200 women, across six cities, four states, and two countries because our attendees expressed the desire for a collaborative international network. Due to the growing success of BBWB and the expressed need of creating similar spaces for women, the BBWB organizers co-founded Coco to include the current programming.

On April 30th, Coco will celebrate 5 years of programming and impact. In the past 5 years, Coco has hosted several community spaces, awarded academic scholarships, supplied Ghana with feminine care, and provided employment opportunities for the community.
