An improved quality of life for Black women and girls through integrating mental and physical wellbeing with racial, social, and economic justice.
The Collective Steps Project is a social-emotional and community wellness organization committed to empowering Black women and girls by assisting in the improvement of their mental and physical health, and increasing their engagement within their communities and each other. To achieve this The Collective Steps Project offers various resources, services, support groups, development workshops, educational classes, community-wide events, and engagement opportunities (regardless of economic status or ability to pay) that will help empower them and give them the tools they need to be more effective at advocating for themselves and coping with the stressors of everyday life. The Collective Steps Project also seeks to advance policies that combat gender, economic, and health related inequities that increases the vulnerability of Black women and girls. Rather than addressing one issue at a time, we weave together a systematic approach to Black women and girls’ wellness.
