The event is sponsored by the Miss Black US Ambassador and Miss Black Teen US Ambassador Scholarship Pageant, LLC in collaboration with the Dr. Ruth Joyce Colbert Barnes Foundation & The Oklahoma Sovereign Arts Foundation. These organizations provide once in a lifetime opportunities to young African American women. As Ambassadors of Change, each young woman embarks on the journey to encourage, empower and enlighten communities, states and nations. These young women are a rising voice in the community that seek to make a difference by providing educational forums and events that focus on health disparities, poverty, violence and major issues plaguing the African American community. They are role models not only to young African American women but to women around the world. Ambassadors of Change partner with key political figures and national initiatives to bring support to their efforts and platforms.
