“Heroes” profiles will be featured on Jenesse social media platforms and as volumed e-booklets in October 2021 and throughout 2022.
LOS ANGELES, CA, USA, October 7, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Jenesse Center announced its “Heroes” campaign during Domestic Violence Awareness Month(DVAM). Every Friday in October 2021, Jenesse will spotlight individuals and entities as “Heroes” on its social media platforms, and also in an e-booklet series, which will be presented in volumes. The individuals presented as “Heroes” are recognized for their contributions to Jenessse Center through volunteerism, donations, advice, guidance and support, which made it possible for Jenesse to successfully reach 40 years of service to the LA community.
Karen Earl, Jenesse CEO said, “We would like to honor our friends and partners who have singularly made another moment, day, week, year possible for Jenesse.” Earl continued, Heroes is relevant as a theme, because in 1980 it took extraordinary vision and leadership to singularly focus on the needs of Black women and children who were escaping trauma and violence.”
Sylvia Swilley, MD Board of Directors, Committee Chair, External Affairs said, “The Heroes of Jenesse show up in a variety of ways; some as financial donors, some as dedicated project and program volunteers, some as caring and empathetic staff. But all share the vision to interrupt the cycle of generational violence that assaults our community. Our flagship youth program is but one of the innovative strategies made possible by our Heroes. We are grateful and salute you.”
Founded by five Black women in the Los Angeles area, the organization offers a holistic platform of preventative and intervention services that are culturally sensitive and trauma informed.
