March 25, 11:20 AM- 1:00 PM â€¢ 1638 Bedford Avenue â€¢ Academic Building 1 â€¢ Edison O. Jackson Auditorium, Ground FloorÂ â€¢Â Brooklyn, NYÂ â€¢Â POWWER!™ (Passionate Outstanding Women Who Effortlessly Rock!) highlights extraordinary women who have advanced their fields while serving and shaping their communities. In keeping with tradition, the POWWER!™ Walk honors all women who lift as they climb. This mid-day walk raises awareness about the link between physical health and mental health, particularly among Black women.
The walks begin at 11:20am in front of 1637 Bedford Avenue. POWWER!™ walkers will trek north to Eastern Parkway and then west to the Brooklyn Museum. We will leave the Brooklyn Museum and walk south to Crown Street, then walk east back to 1637 Bedford Avenue, and end our route where we started.
Starbucks will sponsor a post-event reception for all those who walked. Participants are encouraged to wear superhero blue. The event is sponsored by Girl Trek, the largest public health nonprofit for African-American women and girls in the U. S. For more information, contact Dr. Alexis McLean at 718-270-6046 or email@example.com.
Free and open to the public; no advance tickets required.
