Cel­e­brated phi­lan­thropist and lawyer Loida Ni­co­las Lewis re­ceives the Phoenix Life­time Achieve­ment Award this month at the 35th An­niver­sary Ben­e­fit Gala of Wo­mankind, a non-profit or­gan­i­sa­tion in New York that pro­vides award-win­ning and cul­tur­ally re­spon­sive ser­vices to sur­vivors of do­mes­tic and sex­ual vi­o­lence, hu­man traf­fick­ing, and abuse in later life. Wo­mankind recog­nised Lewis’ con­tri­bu­tions to the Asian Amer­i­can com­mu­ni­ties in the United States through her ad­vo­cacy, in­flu­ence, and gen­eros­ity. “I ap­plaud Wo­mankind on its mis­sion of pro­vid­ing refuge, re­cov­ery, and re­newal for count­less women across New York City, my home. Wo­mankind proves that, to­gether, we can end the vi­o­lence and traf­fick­ing that plague our so­ci­ety,” says Lewis.
