We advocate for equity, opportunity, and justice for Black Illinoisans by expanding the capacity and power of Black-community focused organizations, constituency building, and advancing public policy and education. 


IBAI envisions an equitable and self-determined future for Black Illinoisans by supporting the ecosystem of Black-community-focused advocacy organizations and key stakeholders to dismantle systemic injustices and advocate for holistic, community-derived solutions.

Theory of Change

IBAI organizes and supports the diversity of Black voices in Illinois to develop and implement an asset-based narrative and strategy that centers the needs of the most marginalized in Illinois’ Black community and enhances the advocacy ecosystem to ensure that public policies are inclusive of their interests.
