I first met Morgan Dixon, one of the founders of @GirlTrek, last fall at @ShiftJH and her work and messaging really struck a chord with me. At the time, I had been working hard on a variety of projects at my home office, and I was feeling isolated and disconnected from the world. I saw a film about her mission – creating a national health movement that activates thousands of Black women to be change makers in their lives and communities – through walking – and it almost brought me to tears. Walking in your neighborhood is such a wonderful way to get outside and feel connected to community. It’s what I do when I’m feeling busy and stressed out and need a break, and it makes me so stoked to see the @girltrek movement grow! Be sure to check out girltrek.org to learn more and give them a follow! Ps – they are holding a self care retreat for Black women this Labor Day weekend in the Rockies. It’s called the #StressProtest – learn more at stressprotest.com!Photo is of Girltrekker @ravishing_beauty_ taken by @morgantreks.
