We believe that black women deserve authentic connections that are healing and spirit-led.
Our goal is to be a trusted resource for Black women.
To improve the quality of life for black women through mental health and education resources, programs, and services.
We aspire to create a world where black women and girls are connected, grow, and thrive.
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. 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. Coco Coalition currently serves the San Francisco Bay Area and Los Angeles areas. We proudly funnel our mission through programs, services and resources supporting mental health, and education. Our mental health efforts are captured through community events such as the Black & Beautiful Women’s Brunch and the Coco Coalition Conference. Our education efforts are completed through our Coco Scholarships for college students.
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 include the current programming.
