The focus of the conference is to provide an open forum and space to dialogue about what reproductive health means for Black women and girls and the lives they choose to live.

The POWER SHIFT! conference aims to provide the learning spaces, tools, strategies and opportunity to discuss and implement the changes that need to be made in order to better the health of Black women and girls.

The goal of this conference is for women to feel empowered to mobilize and directly affect change in order to educate other communities of color on the eve of the upcoming 2012 national and local elections.

"For over a decade, Black Women for Wellness has convened conferences, symposiums and town halls focused on educating our communities on reproductive issues that affect Black women and girls," said Janette Robinson-Flint, executive director of Black Women for Wellness. "This year, we are stressing the importance of mobilization. Our emphasis on increased advocacy and civic engagement not only builds the capacity of our community to participate in the upcoming 2012 elections; it also addresses several of the budgetary, legislative and media attacks that have been hurled at Black women's reproductive justice this year."
