The Legacy Foundation for Women is an organization that is dedicated to celebrating women and their contributions. Although the foundation’s mission is to celebrate women and girls of color, during the month of March our initiative expands beyond women of color. Each March, the foundation hosts its International Women’s Campaign in celebration of all women for International Women’s Month.

During the month of March, the foundation invites women of all races to stand together in unity. Our month-long celebration challenges women to show acts of kindness to other women throughout the month, beginning with its kickoff salute to women on Tuesday, March 8, International Women’s Day. On that day we are encouraging all women to pause for a moment of silence at 9 a.m. to honor women throughout history who have made an impact on ourselves and others.

The following Saturday, March 12, the Legacy Foundation for Women will host “Women in the City: The Official Ribbon-Cutting of the Women’s Legacy Parade,” an outdoor event for women to stand together for empowerment and prayer. The first ever Women’s Legacy Parade will be unveiled that will be held the following year.

The ribbon cutting will be held on Saturday, March 12, at 10 a.m. in Winston Square Park in downtown Winston-.Salem, to mark this history making celebration. The organization is supported by Mayor Allen Joines and local city officials. There will be guest speakers and a variety of vendors to visit. The Carver High band will be performing.

The Legacy Foundation for Women has partnered with the Winston-Salem Police Dept., the Forsyth County Sheriff’s office, the mayor’s office, Moji Coffee & Food Truck, K*Metamorphosis Counseling, Pink Morning Breast Cancer organization, K3 Fitness, Union Baptist Church, St. Peter’s World Outreach Center, and many more.

The organization is encouraging all women to come make history at this event. (NO flags, signs, posters, or banners permitted at the event or in the park.) The Legacy Foundation will follow all COVID-19 protocols in observance of  CDC guidelines.
