Happy Wednesday, my friends. Today we launch our one month fundraising initiative and I’m so happy to say we’re already on our way with donations from many of our friends and supporters.
Click here (lookwhatshedid.causevox.com) to see our intro video which shows you who we are behind-the-scenes and what we’re about.
Throughout March, Women’s History Month, we’ll be releasing a new video each week. We’re kicking off our campaign with an interview with filmmaker Grace Lee telling us about activist Grace Lee Boggs, a woman ahead of her time with an inspiring message for us at this moment in our history. (Once you click the link to our home page you can scroll down to find the interview.)
We’re also celebrating our one-year anniversary as an official non-profit. It’s been an incredibly busy time — we’ve produced over two dozen interviews, gathered a strong Board of Directors, expanded our audience and developed a plan for the future that includes partnerships with schools, museums and community groups.
With your help we’ll do our first out-of-town shoot this summer, filming women in Tech in Silicon Valley, women in Science in Berkeley, and women in the Arts in Sausalito. We are growing into a thriving, sustainable operation with national impact. We’re a little company with a big vision and we hope you will stand with us in support of our mission.
Join us by donating now when your dollars mean so much.
Thank you for supporting LWSD! Join us in rewriting history, one woman at a time.
Grace Lee on Grace Lee Boggs
Okay, so— here’s a woman WAY ahead of her time. Activist/philosopher Grace Lee Boggs, a Chinese-American woman who grew up in Queens, born to immigrant parents, dedicated her prodigious intellect and great heart to the causes of civil rights for African-Americans in Detroit. How’d she get there, this young girl out on her own, invisible because of racism, poverty and gender? Listen to filmmaker Grace Lee tell the fascinating — and relevant— story of a woman who made a difference.
