Congrats Daisy Frazier, 2019 Women of Achievement
Fond du Lac Area Women’s Fund has named Daisy Frazier as the 2019 recipient of its Women of Achievement award. This award honors local women who, through visionary thinking, entrepreneurial spirit, leadership, or philanthropy, has made a significant difference in the quality of life in this community.
Daisy Frazier embodies those qualities by working tirelessly in the Fond du Lac community to foster inclusivity and a sense of belonging for all. She travels the trails of uncharted territory, widening the path for our least privileged citizens and invites everyone to follow her along the way. She is a force of positive change and goodwill, and believes that everyone has worth and dignity. Daisy possesses a gift of turning adversity into wisdom which, in turn, transforms societies. Her strength of character and compassionate support for all inspires everyone around her to continue their journeys toward their goals.
Frazier has been the President of Ebony Vision for 8 years where she and other community members serve as mentors to students throughout the Fond du Lac School District. She is unwavering in her commitment to create awareness about positive African American Culture. She is also founding member of The Humanity Project: Telling the Untold Story, which aims to fill in the significant gaps in our knowledge about racial backgrounds, histories, and cultures. The primary goal of the Humanity Project is to get past race as a barrier and rather to see it as a positive aspect of humanity. Daisy also serves as a member of United for Diversity and the Fond du Lac School District’s District Equity Leadership Team (DELT).
There is a prestigious award named in her honor through a non-profit organization Fit Oshkosh, Inc.. The Daisy Frazier Social Justice Award is presented annually to recognize a Fox Valley resident who has championed racial equality and empowered others to do the same. Furthermore, Daisy has been the recipient of the MLK Jr. Spirit Award through Marian University, The Sistah Power Award through African Heritage Inc., the Grassroots Activist Award by the Democratic Party of Wisconsin’s Black Caucus and several others.
She is an advocate, educator, and change agent who uplifts the Fond du Lac community at large through a focus on those who are most often overlooked.
