The NoVo Foundation Awards DWC, Inc. $300, 000
The NoVo Foundation awarded the Detroit Women of Color, Inc. a three-year operating grant for $300,000. This grant will make a difference in the lives of low income girls of color in Metro Detroit by providing training and mentorship for high school students in the art of cinematography and filmmaking. Our resolve to empower participants to transform the way girls and women of color are perceived by society through multimedia is in alignment with the NoVo Foundation’s mission of advancing adolescent girls’ rights, advancing social & emotional learning, and promoting thriving local communities. The NoVo Foundation’s mission is to foster transformation from a world of domination and exploitation to one of collaboration and partnership. Our Change is Reel program will use film to inspire girls of color to see themselves as innovative entrepreneurs and future leaders in the city of Detroit.
