We advance the rights of girls* and elevate justice reform, gender equity, and system accountability through research based community solutions, and bold policy – all with a girl-centered approach.
We envision communities where girls* are safe, respected, valued, and equal partners in their experiences and future.
We value girls’ lived experiences.
We have a responsibility to girls.
Girls deserve transparency.
Girls deserve time to heal.
We value girls’ questions and inquiry.
Girls Voices Matter.
Here’s what they’ve told us they deserve:
Fairness and equity, regardless of circumstances.
To live free from violence and exploitation.
To be protected, not erased by powerful systems.
To be heard and their lived experiences centered.
*We recognize there are limitations to language and our use of “girl(s)”. By “girl(s)” we mean all young people who identify as female, women, femmes, non-conforming and gender expansive individuals.
