CREATE New Comms Ventures

By ,

By ,

From PR with a Conscience to Strategic Communications with Vision Nearly 27 years ago, owning a public relations firm was a lofty, if not ambitious endeavor.

Separated by geography and time, their stories – a parting homage to Women’s History Month – underscore the sometimes lethal journey facing Black women and girls.
