Mission Statement

To help Black women and girls realize reproductive health and collectively affect social change. To distribute honest and accurate information to women and girls and to expose myths and misinformation about various health issues. To teach, educate, train, inspire, and motivate women and girls to become pro-active in their lives so they can reach their full potential.

Description

Founded in 1996, AAWE's definition of reproductive health is broad. We believe women and girls need fact-based, unbiased information about their bodies and all stages of development from menstruation to menopause. This includes family planning , preventing HIV/AIDS and other reproductive tract infections (RTI's), infertility, prenatal care, infant and maternal mortality, breast care, etc. Similarly, AAWE believes that a woman's ability to lead a healthy reproductive life is closely connected to her ability to overcome other social and economic barriers. AAWE's health education and policy/advocacy initiatives highlight the intersectionality of these issues and how they impede a woman's ability to access critical resources and services.
