To all of us at Ms. Foundation, joy is an act of resistance and through jubilant music, inspirational messages and powerful moments of sisterhood. On May 20th, we will salute trail-blazing honorees and visionary women, and raise critical funds for our pioneering grantee partners who are creating safe, just and bright futures for all at the Ms. Foundation for Women's 33rd Gloria Awards: A Salute to Women of Vision.
