Raising Black Girls
A Free Webinar
Aired Tuesday, February 28th, 12noon PST
Spotlight: Girls inspires and activates girls to take center stage. As parents and advocates, we must do all we can to support the Black girls we love. We must protect them from systems designed to oppress them. We must honor their strengths, celebrate their unique identities, and work to make the world a safe place for them to thrive. We must give Black girls everything they need to take center stage.
