Summer of Selma: Powered by GirlTrek
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***

    When I first heard about this event, I’d just completed a 50-mile walk event. It’s a challenge physically, but much more challenging mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. Yet, we stand on the shoulders of those who valued freedom, equity, equality, and justice. We were inspired and prepared for such a time as this. We can do this. #iamawitness

    Ladies – it’s coming. This was posted in January. “THIS YEAR we’re going to Selma!!!! If you were inspired by the recent article chronicling our 100-mile walk on Underground Railroad last year, then here’s your chance to join us on a new history-inspired walk! Join GirlTrek and thousands of Black women in a deeply personal pilgrimage and a marathon-level feat, as we retracing the footsteps of freedom fighters by completing the iconic, 54-mile Selma to Montgomery walk this October. It will be rigorous – emotionally and physically – at nearly 20 miles per day, But I assure you, if you train hard, this journey will help you #GetFree from whatever’s holding you back. More information and registration coming soon.”
