Based in Washington, D.C., GirlTrek is a non-profit organization that organizes walking campaigns specifically targeted at black women and girls and grounded in civil rights history as a way to promote health and community leadership. Its founders, Vanessa Garrison and T. Morgan Dixon, were named 2013 Echoing Green Fellows for their work with supporting at least 15,000 walkers around the country.

Some of the scheduled upcoming treks include a Trek Series in America's National Parks and We Are Harriet: 8-week Walking Challenge and National Tribute. You can also start your own walk with yourself or with friends. They offer resources for you to download.
