SHE Magazine USA Honors Humanitarian Champions 

For Immediate Release

Houston, Texas. SHE Magazine USA, under the stewardship of Beena Yusuf—its Editor-in-Chief and owner—has carved out a unique space in the realm of media and publications. Originally founded by Hearst in the 1960s and now flourishing in the United States with Yusuf at its helm, SHE Magazine stands as a beacon of empowerment, elegance, and editorial excellence. Known for its compelling storytelling, avant-garde fashion insights, and unwavering commitment to celebrating womanhood and humanitarianism in all its facets, SHE Magazine transcends typical publication standards to deliver content that inspires and resonates deeply with its audience.

In the heart of Houston’s bustling Galleria area, a significant event is set to unfold at the prestigious Off The Wall Gallery. Owned by Mimi, this upscale art gallery is renowned for its eclectic collection that spans rare modern masterpieces, vintage posters, and contemporary works from globally acclaimed artists. Since its establishment in 1978, the gallery has become a cultural landmark, hosting events that blend artistry with social impact. It is here that SHE Magazine USA has chosen to honor a group of individuals whose humanitarian efforts have made profound contributions to society.

At this year’s award ceremony held within Off The Wall Gallery’s inspiring confines, SHE Magazine USA aims to spotlight individuals whose altruistic endeavors align with the magazine’s ethos of empowerment and societal change. Among these distinguished honorees are Congressman Al Green, Jacquelyn Aluotto—President of No Trafficking Zone (NZT), Dorian Cockrell—Vice President of JP Morgan Chase, and philanthropist-entrepreneur Tanweer Ahmed.

Congressman Al Green has been a formidable force in advocating for human rights and social justice throughout his career. His dedication to humanitarian causes has not only influenced policy but also inspired many to take action against injustices plaguing society. In recognizing his unwavering commitment, SHE Magazine USA awards him the Humanitarian of the Year Award—a testament to his significant impact on both local communities and on a global scale.
