GrassROOTS Community Foundation (GCF) is a public health and social action organization. We invest in our community members’ collective well-being, so that they can use their health and energy to transform themselves, their families and communities. We support, develop and scale health and wellness programs for women and girls, particularly those who are impoverished. We also advocate for policies and practices that reduce disparities and foster equity.
We are working to create a world where ALL girls grow up to be healthy women.
GrassROOTS was cofounded by sociologist Dr. Janice Johnson Dias and Grammy award winner and lead MC of The Roots, Tariq "Black Thought" Trotter.
