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. As a social enterprise, Coco is focused on creating opportunities for Black women, and sowing in the well being of black teen girls by supporting projects that remove barriers to a healthy and secure future.
Established in 2018, Coco grew from the demand created by the International Black & Beautiful Women's Brunch (BBWB) which was 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 collective 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 expand on the foundation set.
We believe that black women deserve authentic connections that are healing and spirit led. Our goal is that our attendees feel safe, free and accepted!
Coco’s mission is to address emotional, mental and social health by creating experiences for women of the African Diaspora and to mobilize a new generation of empowered black girls.
To create a world where black women and girls connect, grow and thrive.
