About the Event

How it All Started

Black Wellness Health Week was started to promote healthy living and issues within our community. This platform was created out of the desire by people of color from various community organizations wanting to highlight, promote and provide information on what black wellness is in our diverse community. This goal is to unite a broad coalition of community based organizations and groups that focus on people of color to discuss various topics that affect and impact us as a people. This includes policy issues, which focus on physical and mental health, education, transportation, infrastructure, legal and policing. Also, there will be segments on lifestyles topics including food, exercise, music, hobbies, and travel related topics.

We want to hear from you and encourage you to reach out and get involved either through your existing organization or directly.
