Cambria Seeds of Empowerment celebrates Warrior Women who have overcome life’s hardships and encourage others to do the same. These types of women have a positive impact on their local community and provide good role models for young women and girls. The pillars upon which the Foundation is built are equality, community, and spirit. Cambria Seeds awards cash grants to nonprofit groups that display these traits and learn more about Julia Jackson.
