GIVINGTUESDAY THE DIVAS WITH DISABILITIES
DWD Working To Reshape What Disability Looks Like
This Year's #Giving Tuesday presents an opportunity to support organizations, like The Divas With Disabilities Project, who are leading and supporting marginalized individuals during these unprecedented times.
#GIVING TUESDAY helps us grow our Diva State of Mine initiative, which is created to transform the perceptions around Black and brown women with visible disabilities..
The Divas With Disabilities Project is a digital movement and community that is committed to increasing the participation and representation of Black and brown women and girls –DIVAS– Dynamic, Illuminating, Victorious, Achieving Sisters with visible disabilities.
Our mission is to amplify DIVAS’ voices by providing a community and network that identifies opportunities for inclusion in mass media, and by partnering with organizations who have demonstrated a commitment to the inclusion of Black and brown women and girls with visible disabilities.
In addition to supporting the growth of our Diva State of Mine Initiative, Your generous donations will help DWD:
1. Provide opportunities that increase the participation of Black and Brown women and girls with physical disabilities in mass media industries ( i.e., TV, film and advertising);
2. Create and host programs, events, and initiatives that promote civic engagement and financial empowerment;
3. Provide opportunities for Divas to engage in networking opportunities, leadership development, including the arts, health and wellness, and
