My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for National Girls and Women of Color Council, Inc., Jersey City, NJ, USA
As a gender and social justice consultant, scholar, educator and facilitator based in North California. I have served as a board member and PACE program mentor for approximately the past 1.5 years. It has been such an honor and humbling experience being involved with NGWCC.
As a first generation immigrant from India, a woman of color, and a prevention educator in the movement to end gender violence--- I was drawn to NGWCC first when I submitted an essay on Colorism for the recently released edited anthology. I feel so proud to have my essay published in this much needed anthology and have these conversations about the types of oppression young girls and women of color experience in their daily lives.
As a South Asian immigrant woman, I felt visible and heard. I have found this experience very liberating knowing that I can contribute my lived and work experiences to support and show my solidarity to my black, brown, and Native American sisters including trans sisters. I also loved the idea of serving as a mentor through the PACE mentoring program and look forward to this process.
Dr. Donnamaria Culbreth has been and still works day and night to accomplish the vision and goals for NGWCC to ensure NGWCC can educate, empower, advance, and guide young girls and women of color. I find her commitment, passion, resilience and advocacy deeply inspiring and motivating.
