The trauma of systematic racism is killing Black women. A first step toward change...
T. Morgan Dixon and Vanessa Garrison, founders of the health nonprofit GirlTrek, are on a mission to reduce the leading causes of preventable death among Black women -- and build communities in the process. How? By getting one million women and girls to prioritize their self-care, lacing up their shoes and walking in the direction of their healthiest, most fulfilled lives.
Join the movement. In the footsteps of a civil rights legacy, we're building an army of foot soldiers who commit to daily walking as a practice of self-care. Be counted amongst our ranks! Take the official pledge, learn more and get your "superhero blue" shirt at GirlTrek.org, or text the word "Tubman" to 22828 to join. We will get to a million this year!
