ATLANTA, GA AUGUST 2018 – Phyllis Newhouse and Viola Davis have come together as Co-Founders of a new global women’s movement called ShoulderUp.

Around the world, women who represent economic power and voices of influence, have come together to launch what many believe to be the most impactful and important movement of our time. These are women dedicated to connecting and supporting other women on their journey, in an effort to bring about change where and when it is needed the most.

Phyllis and Viola will launch the ShoulderUP Movement during a 2 hour simulcast, called Journey to Legacy. The simulcast on Sunday, August 26, 2018 will offer candid conversation, laughter, lessons, and inspiration, as they teach us that connection begins with understanding the power of your own story. They will share how they each used their pasts to create a new story for themselves, how you can do the same and -in turn- use this as your foundation for building significance and legacy. By tuning in, you will learn the true purpose of the movement, and see how connecting with these women can help you on your individual journey to legacy.

To experience the ShoulderUp launch and learn from these two incredible women, individual and group Simulcast Passes can be purchased at legendsandleaders.com.
