With our current social and political environment, it's no question that the factors that chip away at our young girls’ self-esteem are reaching and affecting them at younger and younger ages. I am so happy to support an organization like the Girls Empowerment Network (GEN), who is working to change that course by providing girls with information and skills to shine brilliantly in safe, girl focused spaces. Because I want all girls, especially my amazing A-V-A, to grow up never questioning her worth, her intellect, her body, and her contribution to the world. #thefutureisfemale
GEN’s 2017 We Are Girls Austin Conference is a month away (Saturday, November 4th). The theme this year is “Become Unstoppable!” Help me reach my fundraising goal of $360 and send AT LEAST 12 girls to this year’s Austin conference that includes dynamic break-out sessions to help empower a generation of brilliant, UNSTOPPABLE girls. A gift of $30 helps to scholarship one girl to the We Are Girls Conference! Any amount donated is appreciated!
If you can't donate, consider sharing my crowdrise page or volunteering at the conference!
You can also support GEN all year-round! I’m a member of GENthusiast Society (soon to be known as Girl Advocacy League (GAL)), which supports girls through member contributions of $100+, which scholarship low-income girls to GEN programs. GENthusiasts have access to empowering workshops, article discussion clubs, happy hours, and educational presentations on girls’ and women’s issues, as well as to this incredible community of girl-advocates. Would love if you joined!
