Milwaukee native opens local chapter of organization to empower women


Healing and empowering an entire community seems like a big task, but one Milwaukee native says it starts in itself.

Entrepreneur Tina Marie returned home and made it her mission to build others. A launch event on Saturday, November 20 aimed to build bridges.

“You come in, it’s the energy that we give off and the energy that we give back,” said Marie. “We are inspiring, we empower and heal each other. “

This is the kind of energy you can feel. It’s that same energy that the women who attended on Saturday want to inject back into their families and communities.

“I see the violence and I see so many traumatic events happening in the heart of the city,” said Marie.

After growing up in Milwaukee, Marie founded her organization – Tina Marie the Bridge Builder – connecting women in cities across the country and even in Cape Town, South Africa.

“One of our centers is looking for middle aged black women. We are a very underserved community and we need each other,” said Marie.

Saturday marked the official launch of the chapter in person in Mary’s hometown, bringing together women like Donna Page – an empowerment speaker who is also from Milwaukee.

“Most of us are in the midst of a transition because of COVID. We want to inspire women to be intentional in creating the lives they choose for themselves in the future,” Page said.

In the future, the chapter will contain other similar events – knowing how the energy can overflow.

“It’s about the mindset of wanting to inject positive energy into your community,” said Marie.
