About Black Women for Wellness
Black Women for Wellness is a non profit grassroots organization committed to the empowerment, health and well-being of Black women and girls through education, advocacy, outreach and research in California. Black Women for Wellness started as sisterfriends with the Birthing Project in Los Angeles in 1997. We began as a group of women concerned about the health and well-being of our babies. As grandmothers, mothers, aunts, daughters, and sisterfriends, we found we had no choice but to take on the plethora of health issues Black women encounter.

Black Women for Wellness is an equal opportunity employer.
