Community Hero Action Group develops, organizes, and produces an annual health conference that is free to the public, filled with topics that are germane to the Black community.  To date, the content has been delivered by over 95% Black clinicians, physicians, and subject matter experts.  We have hosted both successful virtual and hybrid events.



We connected with over 70 organizations and individuals to bring this free content to the community.

We honored the input of the community, grassroots organizations, and partners to identify the topics that they wished to hear more about.


We advanced the voice of our community members,  by gathering political, community, and non-profit leaders together to discuss community policies and programming with direct impact on the Black community.
