The conference is designed to provide an open forum and space to dialogue about what reproductive health means for Black women and girls and the lives we choose to live. The event will feature the learning spaces, tools, strategies and opportunity to discuss and implement the changes that need to be made in order to better the health of Black women and girls. The goal of this conference is for attendees – especially women – to “gather our power” to mobilize and directly affect change to address the challenges in our communities and create a roadmap to 2018 and 2020.

“For over a decade, Black Women for Wellness has convened conferences, symposiums and town halls focused on educating our communities on reproductive issues that affect Black women and girls,” said Janette Robinson-Flint, executive director of Black Women for Wellness.
