Deeds Not Words is a non-profit gender equality initiative founded by Wendy Davis to empower the 38 million young and millennial women to channel their passions into actions and realize gender equality. Our community of change-makers are passionate about a range of interrelated issues, including income inequality, sexual assault, reproductive rights, workplace equality, and paid family leave. Deeds Not Words is a starting point for turning talk and ideas about women’s equality into action. Our digital hub will inspire young women to participate in civic issues, advocate for change on their campuses and in their workplaces, and vote. We will provide education, access to information and resources, and engage a community of #ChangeMakers. In addition to our digital community, we’ve already hosted gatherings on two college campuses and one high school campus; this outreach will remain a critical aspect of programming in the fall when students return to school.
It is humbling to have an engaged, interested group of young women who often ask us for advice on what they can do to help. Deeds Not Words channels that passion and creativity to make a difference in the world!
