Greetings from the Founder

Welcome to the 2nd Annual Sister Friend Empowerment Expo 2019 from the President and Founder of REFORM, Inc. and SFEE Visionary Melrita M. Johnson, LMSW


With joy, thankfulness, excitement and humbleness we are proud to announce and welcome all attendees, speakers, vendors and sponsors to the 2nd Annual Sister Friend Empowerment Expo in the fabulous city of Pine Bluff, AR. We appreciate your support and attendance on last year and look forward even the more to this upcoming year’s events.


REFORM, Inc. prides itself on making an impact in the lives of youth and families by offering tools needed to overcome obstacles and empower them to achieving their goals and aspirations. We all know that takes time, dedication and funding. We appreciate you for your encouragement, prayers, acts of kindness and donations to ensure this event is a success. We would also like to thank each of you for supporting us over and over in each of our requests made to you. Know that we do not take our charge lightly and we appreciate you being behind us.


Each sponsor, volunteer, speaker, Board member, coordinator, intern, and attendees, THANK YOU for believing in our mission and in us to accomplish our goal to make this world a better place. We know without God, none of this would be possible and He has done exceedingly and above all we could ask or even imagine.

This year the SFEE has expanded triple from 2018. We now have 3 tracks: Attendees, Clinicians, and Youth. The Youth track is thanks to ACCESS, its Board, and its Executive Director Annie Jasper. We will have health screening, speakers, vendors, entertainment, educational sessions, door prizes and more.


This is all made possible due to our sponsors, Pine Bluff Advertising and Promotion Commission, Arkansas Minority Health Commission, The Chosen One Professional Services, LLC., Stuff in the Bluff, Chi Eta Phi Nursing Sorority, Inc. Mu Chi Chi Chapter, SWL Technology, and again ACCESS. We pray after the weekend of April 5-6, 2019, something will again be done or said that ignites a flame within you that will be then paid forward. Always remember, Dreams Do Come True with Proper Support, Planning and Action.

Yours truly,


Melrita Maechel Johnson, LMSW
