Interview: The 365 Foundation’s Natalie Venezia on Promoting Women’s Empowerment Through Art, Advocacy, and Community Service

The Landsdale-based foundation, through strategic partnerships with local organizations, strives to foster a more inclusive and equitable society.

Natalie Venezia is Executive Director of the 365 Foundation, which promotes women’s empowerment through art, advocacy, and community service. As a local, key figure in the feminist movement, Natalie is at the forefront of the Foundation’s efforts to empower women and promote gender equality. Through strategic partnerships with local organizations and a steadfast commitment to advocating for women’s rights, 365 Foundation is leaving a significant imprint on the Lansdale community, by fostering a more inclusive and equitable society. As we wind down Women’s History Month, I’m glad to welcome Natalie to the podcast to talk about her organization and how they are fighting for a better future for women – and everyone else.
