The AAAC Takes Action This Month

The African American Advisory Council(AAAC) for Komen Colorado is providing three small grants to African American nonprofits during Breast Cancer Awareness Month! The council chose to support local churches and / or not for profit groups that have a history of commitment to breast health awareness.

This year’s BCAM grant recipients not only celebrate and support breast cancer survivors in the black community; they will also empower women with information, resources, and connections to community providers for screening and possible treatment. Individuals involved in the wellness events will continue advocacy across their communities through ongoing dialogue and follow up with those who pledge to get mammograms and / or enroll in the Women’s Wellness Connection.
