This Giving Tuesday Black Women's Health Imperative Announces Bold Goal of Eliminating All Barriers to the Health and Wellness of Black Women


WASHINGTON, Nov. 29, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- This Giving Tuesday, Black Women's Health Imperative (BWHI) will celebrate nearly 40 years of commitment to the health of Black women and girls by working to raise as much as possible through individual donations in a single day. By donating to BWHI, individuals can directly make a measurable difference in the lives of Black women and girls across the United States.

When you donate to BWHI, you invest in Black women and girls.

"A donation to BWHI is an investment in the future of Black women and girls and a commitment to the fight for health equity," said Linda Goler Blount, MPH, president and CEO of BWHI. "During times of economic uncertainty, it is even more critical to support programs that positively impact Black women."

For decades, BWHI has worked to enhance the well-being of Black women and girls at every stage of their life journey by investing in evidence-based strategies, delivering bold programs, and advocating for health-promoting policies. BWHI's efforts focus on reproductive rights, workplace equity, maternal and child health, chronic conditions, and much more.

"Giving Tuesday is a great opportunity for individuals to celebrate generosity and join us in supporting 21 million Black women and girls nationwide," said Kristin Salkil, chief of development at BWHI. "It has been a history-making year, but there is still work to be done. Every donation makes a difference, and no gift is too small."
