Our gal Luisa Diaz and the Luisa Diaz Foundation celebrated a milestone this month: the 10th-anniversary black tie MAG Gala at The Plaza Hotel.

This annual event recognizes and supports groups that embody the foundation’s tagline, “Kindness is Cool.” This momentous year, two organizations were highlighted: Safe Passage Heals and Sanctuary for Families, which both fight against domestic violence. It was a grand “Celebration of Kindness” attended by important international changemakers from across the globe.

The foundation works with abuse survivors who participate in a year-long confidence-building program and walk in the “Runway of Hope” wearing Jovani dresses, which were gifted to them after the show.  They also surprised Diaz with a proclamation from the New York State Senate recognizing the work she is doing with survivors of domestic violence and human trafficking as well as living up to her overarching theme of “Kindness is Cool” by proclaiming May 15, 2024, as “Luisa Diaz Day.” A “Kindness is Cool” festival was held on May 18, 2024,  in New York City’s Central Park.

Diaz created the Luisa Diaz Foundation and MAG Gala in honor of her grandmother. Diaz-Brown saw her grandmother suffer abuse and witnessed the strength her grandmother had to leave.

An all-star lineup of presenters and performers dedicated the night to honorees and the organizations that are collectively shining a light on the dangers of human trafficking and sharing support for the fight to help domestic violence survivors. The subjects are often not focused on, and this event hopes to spread much-needed awareness.

Kindness is Cool Awards were given to beauty mogul Peter Thomas Roth presented by Candace Bushnell; Beatriz Gasca presented by Lynda Lopez and Jovani Fashions, presented by Juliia Faist.
