Do you care about women’s or social justice issues? Do you care about empowering young girls so they can become strong women?
Teen Voices Rising needs your help.
WriteBoston Youth Programs Associate Liz Torres runs Teen Voices Rising, a Boston-based all-girls program that empowers teen girls and helps them amplify their voices by creating girl-generated media about the issues that affect them.
The program funding is scheduled to run out in January and we do not know where the future of the program will go. These girls desperately want to make an impact and they need the support to help them continue.
We need funds to continue recruiting girls, to sustain them with food, to take them on educational and empowering conferences like the Massachusetts Conference for Women, and to help them go beyond their writing and put their words into action.
Please donate anything you can to help. And if you cannot donate, please use social media to spread the word.
The Boston Globe is hosting a screening of Girl Rising, a groundbreaking film about the strength of the human spirit and the power of education to transform societies, on Tuesday, December 3 at 6 p.m.
The film presents the remarkable stories of girls around the world.
Attendees will meet noted speakers, Prodita Sabarini, the 2013-2014 Elizabeth Neuffer fellow, and Farrah Stockman, columnist and editorial writer for the Globe who writes about Pakistan, Iran and Afghanistan. Both will be speaking after the film.
Attendees will also have the chance to learn more about Prosperity Catalyst‘s role in helping more girls go to school.
