Girl Justice

I am feeling inspired today after reading this excerpt from a paper written by one of our co-founders, Ann Muno:


It’s morning at the Girlvolution Conference, a one-day call to action in Seattle, Washington. Powerful Voices, a local non-profit, trains girls to engage the community in the battery of issues that challenge them. Today’s agenda includes the growing tragedy of youth sex trafficking across the U.S, the media’s sexualization of girls and the struggles of teen pregnancy. Girls hope to mobilize advocates from among the close to 200 adults and youth in attendance. “Girlvolution is about girls leading efforts for a more just world” says Maya a program alum and keynote speaker “and I represent the evolving face of the girl justice movement.”
