Women of Vision Awards: The Future is Feminist
Since its founding in 1973, the Ms. Foundation for Women has raised more than $82 million in support of grassroots leaders and movements committed to equity, equality and justice for women and girls, especially those of color. Taking the lead from activists creating opportunities in their own communities, and buoyed by the enthusiasm of supporters across the nation, we can say with confidence that the future is feminist. That’s the spirit guiding the Ms. Foundation’s Women of Vision Awards on May 17th, 2022, which will celebrate forward-looking honorees while raising funds and awareness to advance our collective power and create safe, just, and equitable futures for women, girls, transgender, and non-binary people.
The 2022 grantee partner honorees are: President and CEO of the Women’s Foundation for a Greater Memphis, Ruby Bright, and State Lead and Co-Convener of the Mississippi Black Women’s Roundtable, Cassandra Overton Welchlin. Our other Women of Vision honorees are Hall of Fame Marketing Executive, Author & Entrepreneur Bozoma Saint John and Congresswoman Maxine Waters, an outspoken advocate for women, children and people of color. Our Free to Be You and Me Award is Founder of GenZ Girl Gang and Activist Deja Foxx, and our Marie C. Wilson Emerging Leader Award recipient is FREE THE WORK Executive Director Pamala Buzick Kim.
These culture-changing leaders will be recognized for their innovative ideas that are igniting change and leading to long-lasting impact today and tomorrow, as the Ms. Foundation builds toward a 50th anniversary celebration in 2023.
