PHILADELPHIA, February 9, 2024 (Newswire.com)
Black women from around the country are gathering at the Philadelphia Marriott Downtown in Philadelphia, PA, February 9-11, 2024, for Power Rising’s annual national summit. This year’s theme, “For the Win!”, will focus conversations on all the ways that black women can win in this moment — from our health to our communities, businesses, finances and our nation. Plenary and workshop sessions will include conversations about a range of key issues black women are dealing with in our personal and professional lives. Topics will include black women’s leadership, reproductive justice, how to run for office, AI and increasing diversity in the tech sector, how to build wealth and common myths around investing and building financial freedom. Approximately 500 women and girls, of all ages, sexual orientations and gender identities, professional & educational backgrounds, and faiths are expected to attend. The summit began on Friday morning with an opening greeting from Power Rising Co-Convener Rev. Leah Daughtry with Musiq Soulchild closing out the weekend at Sunday brunch.
Founded in 2018, Power Rising provides a gathering place for Black women, from coast to coast, to come together and develop plans to build and maximize our personal and collective strengths. Our work is organized around five pillars: Business & Economic Empowerment, Culture & Community, Education & Technology, Health & Wellness, and Political Empowerment. Power Rising Action Fund, our c4 arm, engages in civic engagement and organizing on a nonpartisan basis; promotes awareness of and support for education regarding to strategies and best practices as it relates to community organizing and civic engagement; and promotes strategies that advance racial, gender and social justice. We carry out our work through annual gatherings, regional meetings, regularly scheduled webinars, and other organizing activities. Power Rising was birthed out of a retreat of the women of the Congressional Black Caucus, and our Organizing Committee of high-profile and frontline activists, businesswomen, and organizational leaders, representing the broad diversity of Black womanhood, have banded together to organize this annual gathering.

Uplifted Hearts YMCA Event
Uplifted Hearts Foundation and its founder Hanin Al Qoreishy partner with the YMCA Houston on Feb. 8, 2024 to provide 400 pairs of shoes to Houston children.
HOUSTON, February 9, 2024 (Newswire.com)
The Uplifted Hearts Foundation, a Houston-based 501c3 nonprofit that operates with a profound commitment to building stronger bonds within families and nurturing connections among child refugees and orphans, partnered with the YMCA at their Houston facilities on Feb. 8, 2024, by gifting 400+ brand-new pairs of proper fitting sneakers to Houston children.
Uplifted Hearts founder Hanin Al Qoreishy has an amazing story of perseverance against all odds in migrating from a war-torn Iraq at the age of 12 to the US while navigating cultural and linguistic barriers, cultivating a strong work ethic, and this has driven her true passion for the foundation. Hanin is the Founder and President of Houston-based Legacy Insurance Advisors and dedicates her personal time to her foundation which is her true passion. Hanin was recently featured in the Houston Business Journal as a rising star in the Houston Business community and for the recognition of her efforts to give back to Houston children through her foundation.
The Uplifted Hearts Foundation firmly believes that a child’s relationship with their family serves as the cornerstone upon which their connection with the world is built. A strong and loving family environment provides the foundation for a child’s emotional well-being and their sense of self. It is from this safe and nurturing space that children learn about trust, empathy, and resilience.
The Uplifted Hearts Foundation has additional events planned in 2024, where we will be offering additional materials, donations, food, and/or special events that will truly help and impact Houston families to build these stronger connections among child refugees and orphans.
