Go Girls! Summer 2018

Go Girls! Summer 2018

We won’t let her lose her light.

In this time of #MeToo, we say NOT EVER.

Let's raise girls to be proud of who they are and where they are from.

Let's raise sons to honor and respect girls. Let's raise humans to love and accept and celebrate all genders.

It starts with us.

Your daughter is brave, confident, beautiful, vulnerable, bossy, dramatic, shy, creative, and magic. She’s growing up in a world where violence toward women is no longer tolerated. 

We all agree to speak up. To speak out. It’s gonna take all of us.

She is our world’s greatest natural resource.

Each girl shines so bright.

Together, our daughters light the way towards a safer, more equitable, and more compassionate world.

We won’t let her lose her light. 

 

THIS SUMMER, YOUR GO GIRL! WILL STEP INTO HER LIGHT. ONCE SHE TAKES CENTER STAGE, SHE WON’T EVER LEAVE IT.

This summer, your Go Girl! will:

  • Learn to say yes to people, ideas, and experiences that light her up
  • Learn to say no to people, ideas, and experiences that keep her from her light
  • Learn from highly qualified teaching artists and fierce girl advocates
  • Be inspired by Grammy-nominated Alphabet Rockers, best-selling author Kate Schatz, and other revolutionary artists, leaders, and entrepreneurs and changemakers
  • Make plays, music, media, art, and books that empower her to take center stage in her life
  • Build community with other girls & gender nonconforming kids across race and background to practice empathy, collaboration, and solving problems in peaceful and powerful ways
