The organization’s mission is to empower, encourage and educate women who are encouraged to network, share, grow, and support each other in a nurturing environment. The Rock Out With Me campaign has empowered hundreds of women on its 2015 national tour since its launch in Los Angeles, visiting cities such as Atlanta, Chicago and New Jersey. The D.C. installment is set to be the largest Rock Out With Me empowerment event to-date with an expected 500 guests in attendance.
This campaign is near and dear to my heart and has offered healing for hundreds of women nationwide.-April Daniels, WE TV’s Television Personality
April Daniels rose to fame while being a regular on WE TV’s Tamar & Vince show. Using her platform for good, her mission has been to unite women through unity, love and respect, while showing others that women of reality television can be positive role models during a time when images of women supporting each other on television and social media are far and few in between.
“To much is given, much is expected, and I plan to give of myself in every way possible”, says April Daniels. “This campaign is near and dear to my heart and has offered healing for hundreds of women nationwide. Having the support of the White House Initiative on Educational Excellence for African Americans and holding this event at Howard University during their celebrated Homecoming week is more than an honor. I am excited to give back to the students on campus and to women in the community while honoring a dear friend, Tamar Braxton who exemplifies never giving up and following your dreams.”
