Spotlight: Girls & Young Women of our Coummunity
Article ImageThis month we are celebrating all of the girls and young women in our community. We continue to be inspired by their intelligence, compassion and drive. Unfortunately, many of them have been feeling the stress that comes along with public figures who speak negatively about female bodies and roles.
In hopes of combatting this, we're paying special attention to making sure we continue to reinforce how limitless their possibilities are, uplift their spirits and bolster their self-confidence.

"We all have the power to ensure that every girl in our lives understands that she is valuable. We have the power to attack statements that value girls and women based on physical beauty or as sexual objects. We can raise our voices when girls and women in our lives are denied leadership opportunities solely due to their gender. We can find creative methods to unite to support girls and women in our community."
- Kristin, Executive Director
