Black Women for Wellness
Building Youth Power
October 19, 2017
Call for Abstracts
Each year Black Women for Wellness (BWW) hosts an annual conference to provide a space for Black and African American women to have open conversations and dialogue surrounding reproductive justice, what it means for us, and the right to live the life that we choose. This year we have added a youth track to empower our youth to take control of their own health and lives. Attendees leave empowered and better equipped to educate and mobilize their communities on important issues connected to our health and well-being. This year’s theme is POWER MANIFESTO. History has shown time and time again that when we empower youth and let them take the lead on certain issues, history begins to shape itself in a more progressive way. In this political climate we are witnessing policies and programs that directly go against our reproductive health, rights, and justice. Many of us have been fighting hard to protect the important strides we have made in this field and we will need a strong army to pass the baton to.
The call for abstracts is open and will end on September 30, 2017.
