About Us

Founded in 1994, the California Black Women's Health Project (CABWHP) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and an affiliate of the National Black Women's Health Imperative based in Washington DC. We focus on empowering Black women to take personal responsibility for our own health and to advocate for changes in policies that adversely affect Black women's health status. Our statewide efforts embrace numerous issues, including health promotion and advocacy, which began in partnership with the UCLA Self-Help Center to provide self-help health education resources and policy advocacy for Black women across the state.
