We are unapologetically working for Black women and girls health and wellness

BWWAP was founded in 2017, in the wake of President Trump’s election. The Action Project’s affiliated 501(C)3organization, Black Women for Wellness, has been a pillar of the Los Angeles community for years. But after 2016, it was clear that this is an urgent need to invest further in advocacy efforts to protect and expand reproductive rights and justice for Black women

What we Do

Our work includes advocating for local, state, and federal policies that protect and advance reproductive justice; empowering and engaging activists and community leaders on issues impacting Black women, and electing candidates who will recognize the intersectionality of Black women’s health needs and fight to make sure they are prioritized.
