CW33 are celebrating local women who inspire, lead and forge the way for other women. It’s not just about one day or one month — it’s about what they do, day-in and day-out.

Sarah Nejdl

Addison, Texas

Sarah founded Families to Freedom, a non-profit that helps help victims of domestic violence get away from abusive relationships through car rides and flights to far away family or shelter.

Roxanne Martinez

Fort Worth, Texas

Roxanne Martinez is a remarkable woman and the epitome of a community advocate. She was born to serve. Even before the pandemic, Roxanne poured her heart and soul into the community, always working to improve the well-being of youth and families in our low-income, underserved neighborhood.

Angela Lippens

Fort Worth, Texas

Angela started an organization called Unfaulted (www.Unfaulted.org) which assists young women who have “aged out” of the foster care system. 20% automatically become homeless on their 18th birthday.Angela and her team have worked to provide a family, housing, life skills classes, transportation, food, employment (etc.) to help them transition to successful independence.

Marsha Jones

Dallas, Texas

She is the CEO of the non-profit organization The Afiya Center. Founded and ran by Black women, The Afiya Center is the only organization in North Texas, and perhaps the whole state, that caters to the needs of black women and other women of color in a reproductive framework. She has several groups that is under the umbrella of The Afiya Center.

CW33 wants to recognize the great contributions women have made to our nation and local communities. Remarkable Women is part of a nationwide Nexstar Media initiative to honor the influence that women have had on public policy, social progress and the quality of life.

Throughout Women’s History Month, CW33 will highlight four local women who inspire, lead and forge the way for other women. It’s not just about one day or one month — it’s about what they do, day-in and day-out.

One woman will be named Dallas-Fort Worth’s Woman of the Year and win a $1,000 donation to her charity of choice! From the more than 100 local winners, one woman will be selected and named Nexstar Media Group’s Woman of the Year!
