Did you know Black women are twice as likely to die from cervical cancer and 17 times more likely to receive an HIV diagnosis as our white counterparts?
The health disparities have to STOP.
In 2022 Selma AIR along with the She Looks Like Me Initiative of the St. Paul AME Church, the Rural Health Medical Program, the Selma Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., and Legal Services of Alabama are joining together
to produce the inaugural
She's READY and She Looks Like Me: Black Women's Wellness and Empowerment Summit.
Working in collaboration with the 57th Bridge Crossing Jubilee, we will share information and resources with thousands of women from across the region during this FREE outdoor festival. Vendors will represent many facets of our lives, from personal finance and voter education to health screenings and self-care activities, we will celebrate the beauty of Black women as we pursue total wellness.

Nominate Your SheRo!
We all know a Black woman who is: out of work, works two jobs, or maybe stays at home chasing kids around all day and then heads to night school; a woman who just needs a boost to her self-esteem. Who comes to mind: a mom, a grandmother, a family member, a neighbor, a friend, a co-worker?
Thanks to E. Louise, an amazing Wardrobe Stylist with Designer Tendencies based in Birmingham, we will honor a special woman with an AMAZING FREE MAKE OVER! In addition to her new, custom fashion look, the selected honoree will have a makeup session with a professional make up artist and a hair appointment with a licensed cosmetologist!
