Women of South LA honored for work in our community

Jacquelyn Dupont-Walker was honored as "Woman of the Year" March 26 at the Capitol by The California Legislative Women's Caucus for her significant contributions to our neighborhood. Assemblymember Holly Mitchell nominated her for the 47th District.

"Early in life she was impacted by the models of an entrepreneurial and visionary father and maternal grandfather who taught her self-determination and self-reliance in the context of a strong faith and a commitment to community service," Mitchell wrote in an email.
Dupont-Walker is the founding president of Ward Economic Development Corporation and for 25 years has led it in developing over 280 units of affordable housing and a major shopping mall.

And on March 23 Assemblyman Mike Davis honored the women of the 48th District at CAAM. Michele Turner, executive director of the USC Black Alumni Association, Charmaine Jefferson of the California African American Museum, Carolyn Fowler of Deltek Global Solutions and Betty Yee of the State Board of Equalization were given props to celebrate Women's History Month.
