I ran into the other co-founder, Vanessa Garrison, at my yoga class in Malcolm X Park. She shared that she is committed to taking the Girl Trek! movement to another level by galvanizing thousands of black women to follow the same path as Harriet Tubman. Except her mission is to focus on self-emancipation and self-care. We agreed that something has shifted for new millennium black women. We want more out of life than working and laboring for no reward and no respect. We demand better health options and true "peace of mind."
