The Alliance for Black Justice in Poland


The Alliance for Black Justice in Poland (BJP) is a coalition of organizations and informal groups that collectively advocate for Black, African, and Afro-descendent communities in Poland. We foster a sense of community and belonging through innovative programming, advocate for the civil and human rights of our communities, and provide direct support with access to housing, healthcare, and education, as well as material aid.

Our philosophy and approach

We strive to enact Black liberation not only as a vision of the future but as a daily practice in our work.
We follow the ideals of intersectional feminism and seek to work collectively with like-minded movements and allies.
We center Black women and LGBTQ+ communities in our work for Black liberation.
We recognize the diversity of Black communities in Poland and seek to lift each other up collectively.
