Thank you for supporting Sober Black Girls Club.


Sober Black Girls Club founder, Khadi A. Oluwatoyin, decided to become sober in the fall of 2018. When she went online for guidance, she noticed that many pro-sober platforms did not cater to girls and women who looked like her or shared similar cultural and societal experiences.

When Oluwatoyin turned to in-person organizations, she made a similar observation. In an attempt to share her journey and connect with other Black folks practicing sobriety or curious about it, she created Sober Black Girls Club. At the time, SBGC was just a blog. Today, it is a collective that, in addition to the blog, runs a newsletter, mentorship program, and four weekly support meetings. Through mutual aid, the collective assists members pay for out-of-pocket expenses related to treatment. SBGC gathers online and in person and believes in the power of community, inclusivity, truthtelling, creativity, and social justice.
