Block Chain for Social Justice
Black female entrepreneurship
Racial and economic trauma
Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in the Block Chain world
Daisy Ozim who grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area and in Lagos, Nigeria, is the founder Resilient Wellness, a co operatively owned healthcare system that provides holistic medicine and health education to marginalized and underserved communities.
She’s also the director of Blockchain for Social Justice that uses Block Chain technology to uplift marginalized communities and eliminate poverty and close the wealth gap.
Daisy says it important to talk about race because racism is one of the biggest issues that we’re facing in society as a whole. It’s also important for us to talk about race because we cannot heal or address racism and all of its manifestations if we don’t have a conversation about it.
Her organization Block Chain for social justice is a collaborative organization and that focuses in three key areas,
- Block Chain developer training. Daisy helps people of color and people in lower income communities become block chain developers because they can make $250,000 to $400,000 a year
- Education and access that results in creativity
- Equity in the Block Chain community
Block chain technology can be used for social justice and to help low income and people of color or it can be used to further nefarious goals that hurt people of color.
She wants to ensure that people of color can generate wealth and protect themselves from economic trauma like the Black Wall Street Massacre in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
Her public health work helps people physically, mentally and emotionally heal from racial trauma and internalized racism
