Clinton Foundation Selects Jarvis Freshman

FORTUNE Most Powerful Women Summit moderated by Chelsea Clinton, Vice-Chair of the Clinton Foundation VIRTUAL –

The FORTUNE Most Powerful Women Next Gen Summit held its virtual symposium on October 13-14, 2020, in collaboration with the Clinton Foundation to bring together preeminent rising women in business and select government leaders philanthropy, education, sports, and the arts.

The moderator for this event was Chelsea Clinton, Vice-Chair of the Clinton Foundation, who echoed the Summit’s purpose was hearing from women that are changing the world. The Clinton Foundation selected Jarvis Christian College freshman Joslyn Prince to participate in the panel discussion on combating vaccine hesitancy and public health misinformation. According to Megan Strawther, Senior Manager for Community Engagement at the Clinton Foundation, Vice-Chair Clinton’s team was excited about Jarvis Christian’s “COVID-19 Is Color Blind” Student Action Fund project at the Clinton Global Initiative University (CGI U). They felt Joslyn would be an excellent female student to include on the panel since the Jarvis initiative helps communities of color combat false narratives around public health. Dr. Newman stated, “As a freshman, student-athlete, and advocate for her generation, Miss Joslyn Prince is well on her way to preeminence. Her presentation was so touching and thought-provoking. If you have not watched her video about the impact of COVID-19 on all of us, I strongly encourage you to do so.”

As a CGI U student Commitment Maker, the Jarvis public awareness campaign Your Life Matters! COVID-19 Is Color-Blind: Protect Yourself and Others targets young people of color who are more likely to risk exposure to COVID-19 and most likely to have little knowledge about the pandemic. Many do not believe the dangers of COVID-19 are real.

Participating in the FORTUNE panel was one crucial way Joslyn spread the message those most susceptible to being exposed to the Novel Coronavirus are the same target audience who are most likely to share false narratives about vaccine hesitancy.

The second important point of access to our target audience is Joslyn’s social media YouTube video: https://youtu.be/4fw6vrpM3qM.
