Walking with GirlTrek for Health, Change and Healing* (1:00pm-5:00pm)

Wednesday, September 13

Join GirlTrek’s Team Baraza for a walk and learn how they harness the power of walking, peer support, and leading by example. GirlTrek is a national organization focused on improving the health of Black women and girls by creating a culture of healthy decision making and drawing inspiration from Black history to contextualize health as a broader civil rights issue. “We walk to heal our bodies, inspire our families, and to reclaim the streets of our neighborhoods. We believe in the discipline and power of walking to transform our lives, enliven our communities, and restore our humanity.” girltrek.org
