I'm so excited I'm practically screaming with joy!
Still celebrating the success of our SAY IT LOUD - NOW Global Exhibition and virtual gallery now featuring 416 diverse designers, I received amazing news last night. Yours truly is featured as a "Powerhouse Woman" in Forbes Publication!!!!
“There is a difference between activism and advocacy. Activism is posters, marches, protests, getting everybody aware and informed, mobilizing, cultivating resources to draw attention on a particular issue,” says Pascale Sablan. “Advocacy, to me, is more long-term, the nitty-gritty of policy writing, getting information and statistics embedded so that regardless of the person in charge, this rule has to be followed. Although I do play both roles, I think I lend myself more as an advocacy leader and I have been strategic about selecting board positions that allow me to create policy changes.”

Happy this feature will bring national attention to our Great Diverse Designers Library and hopefully encourage a wider audience to submit for our SAY IT LOUD Exhibitions.
We are always looking to elevate.
