Sista, Remember Your Name...
WOMEN OF COLOR IN MUSIC UNITED
Women of Color are the culture creators of the world breathing life into the soul & essence of the music industry. However, there are 18 white male executives to every 1 black female music executive.
Balancing the scales, changing the dynamic & restoring the narratives of the most consumed stories in music to its rightful owners is the reckoning we need in wake of social injustices across the globe. However, barriers to entry into the music business & gatekeeping pose bigger challenges to the disenfranchised amongst us.
Help JukeJoint Foundation bring more WOC to the table! Your contributions aid in offering opportunities to bridge the racial & wage gaps by establishing economic & social equity to one of the most marginalized groups in the music community.
WHAT WE DO
Reclaiming Our Time
Scholarships & Grants are awarded to active members through a voting process by which the officers select a qualified applicant.
Grants are awarded for the purposes of providing support to members by means of "seed" funding to promote entrepreneurship within the music community, and admission for professional networking and/or conference events that support career growth opportunities.
Our Annual Renaissance Gala raises funds to payoff student loan debt for qualified member applicants.
