Greetings from the Founder

Welcome to the 3rd Annual Sister Friend Empowerment Expo 2020 from the President and Founder of REFORM, Inc. and SFEE Visionary Melrita M. Johnson, LCSW


With joy, thankfulness, excitement and humbleness we are proud to announce and welcome all attendees, speakers, and sponsors to the 3rd Annual Sister Friend Empowerment Expo virtually. 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 is all made possible due to our sponsors, Pine Bluff Advertising and Promotion Commission, Most Worshipful Prince Hall Grand Lodge F. & A.M., Royal Grand Chapter OES, AR Jurisdiction, Arkansas Minority Health Commission, The Chosen One Professional Services, LLC., Chi Eta Phi Nursing Sorority, Inc. Mu Chi Chi Chapter, AR Department of Health Infectious Disease Division, Manifested Visions Events & Design, LLC, D'Zirable Events & Design, LLC, National Association of University Women-LR Branch, Paparazzi Sexy & Elegant Jewels by Marlo, and Dr. Justin Slaughter of Slanguage Products. We pray after the weekend of June 12-13, 2020, 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, LCSW
