Girls & Guys Exercising Mindful Solutions (GEMS) is an organization dedicated to supporting all minorities to empower and inspire all genders to lead healthy, safe, and fulfilling lives by offering resources, education, and support.

The organization provides a safe welcoming space for all to heal, grow, and connect with others who share similar experiences. GEMS also works towards raising awareness about domestic violence and abuse in the community and advocating for policy change.

GEMS will partner with other organizations and community leaders to promote racial equity, violence prevention, and healing from trauma in the Asheville, NC area.
