In the Spirit of Juneteenth, Topic of Discussion Will Cover “What Does Freedom Look Like”
New Orleans, LA – June 13, 2022
Southern-based non-profit Women’s Foundation of the South (WFS) is pleased to announce that this month’s installment of its social media platform Clubhouse’s gathering will take place June 15. Seminal host and producer Jodine Dorcé will continue to lead and moderate this lively interactive discussion. WFS and Jodine Dorcé are aligned in pursuing the foundation’s vision of a flourishing South, where womxn and girls of color are healthy, safe, and wellresourced to determine their own destinies and ensure that they and their families thrive.
The topic of this month’s installation is especially relevant with Juneteenth celebrated on June 19. Juneteenth, a federal holiday in the United States, commemorates the emancipation of enslaved African Americans while also celebrating and amplifying African American culture.
The Women’s Foundation of the South (WFS) is a revolutionary first-ever foundation dedicated to BIPOC womxn and girls across 13 states, guided by grantmaking experts of color. WFS centers and invests in the collective power, health, well-being, economic security, and leadership of womxn and girls of color (WGOC) in the South. Having Jodine Dorcé serve as host of WFS’s Clubhouse gathering is tremendously exciting for the foundation; the irrepressible Ms. Dorcé is well-known for her groundbreaking work with artists, and WFS also uses the arts to ground its work.
Not only is Ms. Dorcé an award-winning event marketer, but she has been discovering, branding and promoting arts, music and culture for over a decade. She is also renowned for her hosting, moderating and interviewing skills, so her upcoming Clubhouse with WFS is eagerly anticipated. Clubhouse, an interactive, voice-based platform where users can join real-time discussions in designated rooms, offers Ms. Dorcé and WFS leaders an outstanding opportunity to gather with other people and talk about the issues that women and girls of color face in the South. Spreading this message is key to getting others behind the cause and Ms. Dorcé’s voice will help amplify WFS’s mission of building the health, wealth and power of WGOC in the South.
