Pastor Laequinla Hunter launched the Christian Women Alliance (“CWA”) with Thessalonians 5:11 as her guiding star. Thessalonians 5:11 states, “So encourage each other and build each other up, just as you are already doing.” And CWA seeks to empower and build women up by having women supporting women. CWA’s mission is to “form a network of Christian women who under-gird, support, & empower one another in areas of business, ministry, partnership, and community service.”

CWA has served the community by fighting to end hunger with their Annual Hunger Walk, where they raise awareness and funding to support this cause. They also strive to support the plight of autistic children by using their platform to shine a light on this area. Not only have they used their platform, but they have held fashion shows and similar events to raise awareness. These fashion shows not only bring awareness to autism, but they empower and inspire the young women that participate in them.

To empower young women and girls, CWA established a mentorship program called We Stand Tall (“WST”).  WST’s mission is to build-up, promote, and empower the young ladies to achieve success, through education, values, and positive self-esteem. CWA hosts workshops, empowerment sessions, and college prep classes to put young women on the right track.

Lastly, CWA has partnered with the Micro-Nonprofit Network to host several workshops geared towards providing nonprofits and small businesses valuable information related to operations, growth, and outreach.

CWA’s service to the community seeks to touch the lives of the marginalized. And often, like many nonprofits that serve the marginalized, their true impact cannot be quantified. Today, we honor CWA because their impact is beyond measure.
