Spring 2010, eight women came together to share in a sister-hood of bonding and intellect through meaningful conversation. Diverse and inspiring ideas sprung from the well of the in-depth dialogues. Artoria Dee Frazier, one of the eight women, deeply contemplated her current, fortunate status. Artoria, affectionately known as Ms. Dee, also reluctantly reminisced about her childhood growing up in the project in Brooklyn, New York. Ms. Dee, at the moment, decided to focus her energy and her time giving back to the community that cultivated her into a caring and compassionate, contributing member of society.
Ms. Dee moved quickly to formulate and coordinate the inaugural back-to-school event. School supplies were collected, sorted, packaged, and appropriately distributed to 300 students. The back-to-school event was held in the parking lot–the same parking lot Ms. Dee traversed back and forth as a youth to the neighborhood corner store–of Unity Towers Project (also known as 2007) in Coney Island, Brooklyn, New York. Because the back-to-school event was a tremendous success; Ms. Dee decided to continue with her aspirations and launched Women with Voices Charity Incorporated.
Women with Voices Charity Incorporated was founded by Artoria Dee Frazier. Ms. Dee became the 501(c)(3), non-profit charitable organization’s President in 2012. Ms. Dee currently serves as Founder/Executive Director. Ms. Dee’s dedication and commitment to giving back stems from her childhood experiences. Ms. Dee vividly recalls, like a fresh wound, the afflictions of both generational and situational poverty: besieged with drugs, violent crimes, lack of school supplies, and community support. Ms. Dee uses Women with Voices Charity Inc., as the platform to transform lives of individuals and families from low, socio-economic communities.
