Having Our Voices Heard is a Conference For African-Americans Who Stutter and will be a ground breaking nationally focused event.

The African-American Women Who Stutter Project was birthed in 2008 out of the Women’s Empowerment Support Group. Its focus  is centered on actions which will provide African-American women who stutter the opportunity to improve their quality of life, as they embrace this disability which carries a dreadful social stigma. In order for this project to accomplish its mission the gathering, documentation and dissimulation of information on African-American women who stutter is absolutely necessary. A questionnaire has been designed to meet this mandate. It is imperative that all African-American women who stutter complete this questionnaire.
