Summer of Selma

Help us make history! GirlTrek will walk in the footsteps of a civil rights legacy. Over the next three years, we will train 10,000 everyday women to serve as frontline health activists. The teach-ins and events above will all culminate next year, on sacred ground, in Selma, Alabama. There, we will retrace the steps of the historic 54-mile walk from Selma to Montgomery and end in an epic 3-day training festival called Summer of Selma! Picture a revival-like festival with artists, world-class teachers, vendors! It will be a real moment in time, new annual tradition, a new cultural institution, the Woodstock of healing for Black women.

***Registration for this event is not yet open. Please check back at a later date***
