Vision: women of color working to achieve breast health equity for African American women in Greater Atlanta through community empowerment.
Mission: to increase early breast cancer detection and improve survival outcomes for African Americans in Greater Atlanta.
Today, black women in the U.S. are about 40% more likely to die from breast cancer than white women. We can change that fact. Take action—get educated and empower yourself to know your girls™. Visit KnowYourGirls.org for the tools to take charge of your breast health.
