ONYX HEALTH AND WELLNESS EVENT
April 4, 2019 — Success 2.0: Health and Wellness Awareness Event with Village Health Foundation to bring awareness to a holistic wellness center for diseases that affect African Americans.
Empowerment Camping Retreat
July 13-15, 2019 — We took several community members to Will Rogers State Beach during Black Pride Weekend 2019. Our goal was to teach unity and self awareness to participants while connecting with other service providers and sectors of LGBTQ+ community.
We focused on reducing isolation and developing healthy social networks by facilitating on-site education, educational materials, and resources addressing risk reduction, condom usage, PrEP, and PEP awareness.
This event had larger numbers of participation from our Lesbian Sisters. Our staff and volunteers provided wellness and PRep/PEP information to many who were not aware of the services.
The feeling of belonging and PRIDE had a tremendous healing effect on our community.
