We are motivated to save Black women's lives from breast cancer through community-led innovations



  • Listen to the voices of Black women and healthcare providers to understand and define core issues around breast cancer mortality in Black women.

  • Ensure that GAPS guiding principles are at the heart of all interactions.

  • Use innovative co-design with Black community leaders, advocates, and systems reps to design replicable prototypes.

  • Build community engagement and momentum by nurturing public, private, and community partnerships for insight, access, and funding.
