The Black Women's Health Imperative is the ONLY resource dedicated to and for black women's health. As an advocate for black women, the organization provides unparalleled services and serves an unmet need in communities who need support most. It is with great honor that I lend my voice in support of a movement that was established years ago and continues to live on through strong leadership and a dedicated staff despite the hard economic times and the assaults against women's health and black women's health.
