I'm not able to attend the 2019 Gloria Awards, but I want to honor the Ms. Foundation's 45th Anniversary with a donation.

The Gloria Awards is the Ms. Foundation for Women's largest annual event, celebrating activists, innovators, and philanthropists who ignite policy and culture change on behalf of women and their communities nationwide. Named after Ms. Foundation Co-Founder Gloria Steinem, the event pays tribute to the remarkable achievements of feminists whose courage and leadership move us toward our shared vision of a just and inclusive democracy.

Across generations, across the nation, women and girls are standing together to demand change that is overdue. More than ever, women and girls are vocal and mobilized. Generations of women are empowered to create social, political, and economic equity for all genders.

The 2019 Gloria Awards theme--Looking Back on Our Future--honors intergenerational wisdom, courage, and success.
