This Summer, GirlTrek - the largest national health movement for Black women and girls, is hosting Welcome Walks in your neighborhoods across the country! As Black women, we frequently find ourselves in spaces where we aren't free to show up as our authentic selves, and GirlTrek is here to provide a place for our lights to shine brightly like the diamonds we are. Therefore, we are creating safe and soft spaces where Black women feel loved and cared for.
Check out our Top WELCOME WALKS FAQs:
1. What are Welcome Walks?
Every 3rd Saturday of the month from July - September, GirlTrek will be hosting Welcome Walks in 1000 Black Neighborhoods. In a world that often makes us feel unwelcome and isolated, we are declaring that Black women are welcomed here. By hosting your own Welcome Walk, you are 1 of 1000 women. You are being a sister’s keeper and making sure that the women in your community feel seen and supported.
