2019 has been a year of equity at Gwen’s Girls! We know our girls have limitless potential, but face so many obstacles, especially in the wake of the City’s disturbing gender equity report. Your support will help catapult them onto a level playing field.
Over the past year:
- Fifteen girls successfully completed the inaugural Black Girls Advocacy and Leadership Alliance (BGALA) cohort;
- More than 20 partners committed to continued engagement in the Black Girls Equity Alliance (BGEA); and
- One hundred girls and families living in neighborhoods with high rates of poverty, crime and violence received high quality, gender-responsive programming daily.
For the past 17 years, Gwen’s Girls has served more than 5,000 girls through our after-school, school-based and community-based programs and services. We know there are lots of charities to choose from, and thank you in advance for supporting our girls! We wish you and yours a safe and happy holiday.
