Girls for Gender Equity's Sisters in Strength
Saturday, 11:15 am to 12:45 pm -- Rm. B-266

Girls of color and queer youth are being pushed out of school and unjustly pushed into dead ends. Join Girls for Gender Equity's Sisters in Strength Youth Organizers as we speak truth to our experiences and build community- centered solutions to school pushout. Together we will engage in an interactive presentation of our research on harsh discipline practices, their impacts on girls and LGBTQ youth of color, and build strategies for transformative change.
