    Photo by EPA | Words by Jazmin Zayuri Gonzalez

    My father went missing in October of 2015. When I found out I tried to remain calm and collected, but deep down I feared the worst. He traveled to Texas for work, but never arrived at his destination. With said situation at bay all I wanted to do was cry, but what I needed to do was to find my father. I channeled the strength he taught me and exhausted all resources to find him. I filed a missing person report while my mother and sister wept uncontrollably behind me. I plastered his image throughout the city and all my social media platforms. I even had a family friend drive to Texas just to post flyers along various routes.

    GirlTrek and the #BlackGirlJusticeLeague

    Interview By Jessica Rodriguez

    GirlTrek is a national nonprofit that encourages Black women and girls to reclaim their health by pledging to walk daily. They have built partnerships with outdoor retail brands (REI, ACE and Columbia to name a few), the National Park Service and Michelle Obama’s Lets Move Campaign. GirlTrek’s movement has been featured in The New York Times, and was named a Health Hero by Essence magazine. The rising health issues, like the fact that 82% of Black women are over a healthy body weight, shows the dire necessity for an active based health program within the Black community. And with over 70,000 participants, Girltrek plans to fill this void. In this interview, GirlTreks’ Communications Director, Jewel Bush and I discuss Black women’s health and their upcoming election campaign, The Black Girl’s Justice League.
