Hearing the stories of countless women over 50 whose aspirations were stifled by discrimination inspired me to create LUCY™.  LUCY’s exclusive mission is to boost the confidence and stature of women in their quest to overcome the deeply entrenched forces of age, race and gender discrimination. 

We are fully committed to serving as advocates for social and racial justice, and the end of discrimination for women of all races, ethnicities and sexual orientations—discrimination disproportionately impacting women in African American, Latina, Asian American, Native American and LBGTQ+ communities. 

LUCY’s full-scale, interactive platform will unveil many resources for LUCY’s members and partners, including opportunities to participate in LUCY Cares™, created to alleviate the suffering of children and families stemming from social injustice and unfairness in its countless forms.

LUCY especially aims to support and uplift women and families destabilized by the ongoing pandemic and torn apart by the war in Ukraine—people for whom the dream of a better tomorrow must seem farther off than ever.

Meanwhile, we hope you will be inspired by this introduction to LUCY’s mission, ideas and content.  An innovative and experiential destination replete with tools, connection, and support is on the horizon to help us all realize our dreams!

Welcome to LUCY!
