Mother’s Day Luncheon for Peace

On Thursday, May 5th, 2916 we honored Jean Gordon, the founding member of Arkansas WAND, at our annual Mother’s Day Luncheon. Jean has been an advocate for peace and social justice issues for over a half century, and we are so grateful to have her as an active member of our Board to this day.

We also recognized Arkansas women legislators.

Dr. Sherece West-Scantlebury, President and CEO, Winthrop Rockefeller Foundation was our keynote speaker. The Winthrop Rockefeller Foundation is a private, independent foundation whose mission is to improve the lives of all Arkansans in three interrelated areas: economic development; education; and economic, racial, and social justice. Involved in philanthropy for over 20 years, Dr. West-Scantlebury served as CEO at the Foundation for Louisiana and as a program associate at the Annie E. Casey Foundation. Her professional career includes nearly 30 years of experience in community development, public policy and advocacy, and public service.
