Wins For Kansas: Empowering Black WomenPosted: Updated:
Black Women Empowered has been helping women in Wichita heal since 2012.
President and Founder Mary Dead says its members come from different backgrounds to discuss issues impacting every aspect of their lives.
"In our culture it's shamed you don't want to admit that you have issues and so we want people... black women to understand there is no shame in seeking out help and admitting you have a problem," said Dead.
The group works to promote healing through counseling, friendships, and referrals.
Black Women Empowered was honored by DeVaughn James Injury Lawyers with a $500 Wins for Kansas grant.
