Sen. Elizabeth Warren received an endorsement Thursday from a group of more than 100 Black women and gender-nonconforming activists. In a video released by Black Womxn For, a political safe space for all Black folks who do not claim male identity, the group's leadership explained that while every candidate has flaws, Warren was the candidate that most embodied the causes for the empowerment of all people.

For her part, Warren has accepted the endorsement as a responsibility, tweeting that she is committed to continuing the fight for the issues that made her the group's choice in the first place. 

Last month, a Quinnipiac poll showed Warren's popularity at 20% among Black voters, an improvement from 10% in August but still well behind former Vice President Joe Biden who stands at 36%.
