Head Women In Charge: Tanya Fields, Creative & Executive Director of the BLK ProjeK

February 15, 2012  |  

 

Meet Tanya Fields, the Creator and Executive Director of the BlK ProjeK.  The BLK ProjeK is a much needed program that seeks to address food justice, public and mental health issues as they specifically relate to under served women of color. Through culturally relevant education, beautification of public spaces, urban gardening and community programming, Fields has set out to empower less fortunate women of color. The BlK ProjeK looks to create easy accessible resources and enrich the lives of women who are routinely overlooked and overburdened yet serve an important and critical role in the larger fabric of society. The goal is to strengthen overall mental and public health, as well as to elevate the collective self esteem of the larger communities they live in.
