Are you joining us for Racial Truth & Reconciliation Week beginning August 2nd! Checkout this piece in the ART & ACTIVISM Showcase, “To Be.” Programs created by Girls for a Change address institutional racism, sexism, the digital divide, and the glass ceiling, which for many Black girls can be a “concrete ceiling.” Girls for a Change take on complex societal issues long before their time, but they recognize the implications of oppression, even if they cannot put a name to it. Listen to the experiences of these youth through this piece. More details are here https://vakids.org/our-news/blog/save-the-dates-racial-truth-reconciliation-week-8-2-20-8-8-20.
