Queen-Talk, a new women’s empowerment organization, has plans on helping women of all ages in the Meridian area that are in need.
“With a group from Meridian, Mississippi; we decided that we needed a change and the only way to get that change was to stand on our words.We are open to the public on every other Tuesday, we meet at six pm for every all women,” said Darnella White,Queen Talk vice president. “This was an idea they came up with a way for women to come together as a unit to talk about issues that we go through on a daily basis, and way for women to have a way to vent,“ said Tcarro Johnson, Queen Talk president.
Domestic violence relief is one of the services the organization provides. “That was just one of our topics on one of our meetings, but we are working with the Care Lodge to bring in women to better women, we don’t have a select amount on how many we’re going to help anyone that needs help is available to come to us,” said Darnella White,Queen Talk vice president. Organizers say they felt the time was right to launch another resource the community could use. “We are here in the city basically volunteering our time to work with all ages of women whether it’s homeless women, whether it’s women that are insecure about their looks, or anything like that; we’re all working together,” said Darnella White,Queen Talk president.
