Honorees will include radio icon Lady B, Tiffany Tavarez, Vice President and Community Relations Senior Consultant; Diane Cornman-Levy, Executive Director, Women’s Way; Jalak Jobanputra, Founder/Managing Partner, FuturePerfect Ventures; and Mo’Ne Davis, American former Little League Baseball pitcher. These empowered women have made significant contributions nationally as well as to their respective communities.

“As an unwavering advocate for women and girls, I am thrilled to host such a valuable and worthy event with The National Youth Foundation,” said Councilwoman Reynolds Brown. “I think it is imperative that young girls are exposed to positive women role models.”

This interactive event is being held in conjunction with The Amazing Women’s Edition’s “Local Heroines” writing contest, which affords students in grades K-8 the opportunity to present their literacy skills through writing and illustrating their own books. The winner of the contest will be awarded with publication of her book, and will be announced at the Girls Day Rally event.

“We are thrilled that women and girls are being honored and celebrated through this groundbreaking girls rally,” said Sophia Hanson, founder of the National Youth Foundation and the Amazing Young Women’s Edition competition. 

“Through the book writing contest, we are able to inspire young girls to get to know extraordinary women in their communities. Storytelling is the best way to share HER story.”
