GrassROOTS Community Foundation is a collaborative effort of Tariq Trotter, co-founder and lead MC of the Grammy Award winning group the Roots and sociologist, Dr. Janice Johnson Dias.

The organization’s goal is to advance a world where all girls grow up to be healthy women and uses funding from a concert series, grants and the public to provide health programs, workshops, financial and research support to community-based organizations offering educational and recreational health services to disadvantaged women and girls in 10 cities in the US where women and girls experience the highest incidences of obesity, breast cancer, suicide and HIV/AIDS.

Maryam Myika Day, creative advisor with GrassROOTS tells KFWB’s Maggie McKay and Andi Marshall about what to expect at their fundraiser this Wednesday:
