Stress Protest is a three-day life-altering outdoor experience rooted in radical self-care.
For the last two years, Black women have been on the frontlines fighting a pandemic and fighting for our families. Our labor has been endless and our bodies need rest—and we know without a doubt that slowing down is the most radical thing you can do to heal.

For three days, we will come together to
as we protest anything and everything that brings us stress.
Set in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado, Stress Protest is the reprieve you need to release the weight of the world you carry year-round.
It is an opportunity to restore your joy; an experience to exhale by engaging in outdoor activities, mindful moments, and soul-rejuvenating workshops. It is permission to put yourself first. For three days, we will come together to heal in nature and replenish our spirits as we protest anything and everything that brings us stress.
Enjoy a weekend of adventure and healing
Black women coming together to hike to the mountaintop, burn our burdens in the campfire, learn the healing traditions of our ancestors, set our fears on fire, experience life-changing breakthroughs, meditate and make magic as we skate, swim, and shimmy with our sisters, plus more!
The largest health movement for Black women in the country with one million members.
Each year, GirlTrek hosts Stress Protest to provide a sacred safe space for healing and fellowship. In 2018, GirlTrek co-founders Vanessa Garrison and Morgan Dixon led thousands of women to dedicate the entire year to staging a #StressProtest. That initial commitment is now an annual tradition.
Alongside a national staff of radiant women, scores of talented faculty and hundreds of volunteers, Morgan and Vanessa are leading a rebellion against stress, disease and pain. This weekend is an invitation to join them in a revolutionary act of self-care!
Don’t wait until the last minute. Spaces are very limited and #STRESSPROTEST 2022 will sell out.
