Alison Moses is President of Women In Action. Women In Action is a service organization originally founded to assist in supporting African American Political Candidates running for public office. Like so many other organizations its focus has expanded to helping others in many ways that encourage and inspire including those who have been abused or denied needs because of their imposed station in life.Moses, is a true achiever who believes in giving back. This former Rose Princess is a graduate of Spelman College and Howard University Law School. In Pasadena she attended Westridge and later graduated from John Muir High School. She says she joined Women In Action because of her exposure to the good deeds she observed the organization perform. It provides a vehicle for her to give back to her community.
The centerpiece of WIA is their annual Jackie Robinson Dinner and fundraiser. This year's event is scheduled for June 5, 2010. The organization gives out awards to youth for great strides in improvement, rather than scholarships only based on academic merit. Moses says they are awards because they are not given to the high achievers. Instead the awards are given to those who have had to face obstacles and climb up the rough side of the mountain and now they provide a success story because they survived life's abuses.
Moses is a true believer in the proverb that effectually says: "To whom much is given much is required." She works at a law firm where she is a corporate expert, but her passion lies with her work as a member of the Missionary Society at her Church. And she looks forward to working to continue the political traditions of the organization while continuing to expand the new directions Women In Action is involved in.
