Celebrating Black History: T. Morgan Dixon and Vanessa Garrison

T. Morgan Dixon and Vanessa Garrison, founders of the health nonprofit GirlTrek, are on a mission to reduce the leading causes of preventable death among Black women – and build communities in the process. How? By getting one million women and girls to prioritize their self-care, lacing up their shoes and walking in the direction of their healthiest, most fulfilled lives. (Spoiler Alert: they already reached their goal in 2020!)

Watch their TED Talk from 2017 or go to their website and get inspired!

Who has inspired you? We will continue to celebrate Black History throughout the rest of the term; the OICL Task Force invites you to share or film a short video about someone who is important to you. Please send your submission to OICL and Ms. White with a short introduction to the video and/or the person featured in it, and we’ll include it in a future Bulletin post!
