NATIONAL HARBOR, Md. - Black Girls Who Organize (BGWO) is holding its second annual Relax, Relate, Reset (R3) Retreat in National Harbor, Maryland, Oct. 12-14. 

The event, sponsored by a variety of partners, including Presenting Partner Modular Closets and Partners: Neat Method, California Closets, and the National Association of Black Professional Organizers (NABPO), features a series of workshops, discussions, and activities designed to foster personal growth, leadership development, and community building.
