rePRO Film Fest will present its second ChangemakeHER Award to Jonelle Procope, President & CEO of the legendary Apollo Theater, on Monday, August 16th at 6:30pm ET / 5:30pm CT / 3:30pm PT. Procope will be interviewed by Alexis McGill Johnson, President and CEO, Planned Parenthood Federation of America.
Since 2003, Procope has led the Apollo, an American cultural treasure and vibrant non-profit organization that is rooted in the Harlem community but that speaks to, and welcomes, people from around New York, the nation and the world. Under her leadership, the Apollo has remained steadfast in its commitment to meeting the needs of its community while standing firm it what is has always been — a beacon for Black artists and contemporary culture, and a catalyst for social and civic advocacy.
The rePRO team is excited to honor Procope for her commitment to the art of storytelling - particularly supporting people from historically marginalized communities - and its power to humanize lived experiences and catalyze important dialogue that can incite advocacy and awareness in a wholly unique way.
This event is free and open to the public, and will be broadcast on the rePRO Film Fest website.
