Living Legacy Awards
The Executive Assistant to the President of the Women's International Center has helped win a years-long legal battle waged by herself and Lawyers Against Lawsuit Abuse to protect individuals and California businesses from fraud and extortion regarding disability access. We celebrate Noni's courage in appearing in Sacramento before the Senate Committee which helped influence Governor Brown's signing into law of this important legislation. Noni appeared on the cover of the The San Diego Union and on local news. Thank you Noni for speaking up and using your voice to make our world a better place!
The Women's International Center is pleased to announce the 2013 Spotlight on Women Speaker Series in collaboration with The Women's Museum of California, Pacific Arts Movement, The San Diego French American Chamber of Commerce, and the National Asian Pacific American Women's Forum. Our growing Series is held at various locations around San Diego and features professional and celebrity speakers and delicious international food. We encourage people of all ages to join us in this cooperative environment and, time permitting, guests may announce to our group who you are, what you are looking for, and you may promote your own causes. Bring your business cards and fliers, save the dates!

Our list of amazing Living Legacies inspires others to be all they can be, to boldly realize their dreams, to improve communities through empowerment and education, not through gratuitous charity. We welcome private, corporate, and government support of our events and operating costs, so that all profits go to Sisterships and Scholarships, toward which we have directed many thousands of dollars since our founding. Recipients have included The Americas Foundation in Mexico, The William J. Kupiec Academy for Girls in Nigeria, White Rainbow Project supporting Widows in India, Women Victim to Victim (KOFAVIV) in Haiti, and many others.
