Written by Alumna Riley Zuccarello (WG ’14) and the Wellfit Girls Alumnae Network

“Wellfit Girls was founded on the values of leadership, connection, and very importantly, sisterhood. It is with those intentions in mind that Wellfit Girls pledges support to ALL of our sisters regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, color or creed.

Throughout the Wellfit Girls curriculum we learn about generous listening. Now more than ever it is time to listen generously to the black women and women of color in our community.

The Wellfit Girls Alumnae network recognizes the importance of raising up black girls and women today and everyday.

The Wellfit Girls Alumnae network unapologetically stands in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement, our black sisters, supporters, friends, and community members. We see you, we hear you, we stand with you, and we will continue to advocate for you.

Together we will mourn, together we will heal, together we will learn, and together we will #EmpowerBlackGirls.”
