Sisters@Eight

Black Women for Wellness Sisters @ EightSisters @ Eight is BWW’s community forum which brings hot topics and major health and wellness issues to the forefront of public conversation.

The program is a community forum which is held on the 2nd Friday of each month. We also host an annual Mother’s Day Tea in May, a Bring a Brotha to Breakfast in June and a Garden Party in August.

PROGRAM OBJECTIVES:

  • Host monthly Sisters @ Eight meetings to inform and educate members, volunteers and our health care community on gender, culture and age implications to health and well-being;

  • Inform and engage grassroots leadership, health care professionals and advocates with current events, policy and resources impacting African American women and our communities health status;

  • Recruit & organize a cadre of advocates to interact with media and policy makers regarding gender issues important to eliminating racial health disparity;

  • Conduct staff trainings with partner organizations on a gender analysis of racial and economic health disparity in South Los Angeles;

  • Monitor the California state budget as it impacts programs and services for low-income families and underserved African American women and girls;

  • Monitor health status reports to keep community leadership informed with the big picture of health disparities impacting African American & Black communities;

  • Monitor the implementation of the Affordable Care and Patient Protection Act as it is developed, implemented and impacts Black women & girls to help empower, mobilize, and organize our members and partner organizations towards advocacy.
