Moira Mumma, a northern Chester County resident who has an extensive history of working to advance and improve the lives of women and girls, was an active participant in helping set the vision and tone of CCFWG as an original board member. She will be honored at the CCFWG "Making a Difference Luncheon" on Friday, May 6, said a CCFWG press release.

The Chester County Fund for Women and Girls established the Kitchen Table Award to honor outstanding Chester County women who have demonstrated leadership and made substantive contributions through service or philanthropy to improve the community.

Mumma, the daughter of the late Malcolm Forbes, the publisher of Forbes magazine, has been the driving force behind promoting independence and justice for Chester County residents and organizations alike in her role as founder of Citizen Advocacy of Chester County, as well as the Community Coalition. She has also served on the Board of Orion Communities, Historic Yellow Springs, and the Chester County Community Foundation, the release said.

The 2016 luncheon, which will be held at the Desmond Hotel and Conference Center in Malvern, will also feature keynote speaker T. Morgan Dixon, co-founder of GirlTrek, a groundbreaking three-year-old national nonprofit based in Washington, D.C. GirlTrek aims to inspire and support African American women and girls to live their healthiest, most fulfilled lives through walking, the release said.

Dixon is a relentless street-organizer who is deeply inspired by her family and the philosophies of many influential women, the release said. Prior to co-founding GirlTrek, Dixon was on the front lines of education reform. To learn more about GirlTrek, visit www.girltrek.org.
