About Black Women for Wellness

Organized by 6 women in 1997, Black Women for Wellness (BWW) is on a mission to enhance the health and well-being of Black Women and their families through education, empowerment and civic engagement (advocacy). We are a multi-generational, member-centered, volunteer-driven organization utilizing civic engagement, community education, policy and media outreach to address the health inequities of African American women and their children.

Black Women for Wellness has touched the lives of over millions of women (and our families) with health information, education and legislation. Our strategies include: (1) Increasing communication, networking and information sharing among community members; (2) Developing and implementing programs and health education materials that are culturally and gender attuned to the lifestyles and needs of South Los Angeles Black women and families; (3) Supporting and empowering women to take leadership roles and positions that advocate for and drive resources; (4) Research and validation of effective prevention strategies and tools while documenting new trends that impact health and well-being; (4) Being an active listening voice concerning the health status of Black women and their families.
