GIRLS ACTION NEWS
In this moment of major social transformation where the creation of a better, more just world feels possible, we believe that it’s important to make a clear statement that we stand with the Black Lives Matter movement & Indigenous sovereignty.
Head over to this page for the complete statement: www.girlsactionfoundation.ca/nous-luttons-ensembles.
Girls Action is once again embarking on the creation of a digital zine by and for girls* and young womxn in our communities! This is why we appeal to you, your creative sense, your commitment and your feminist dedication.
We accept all forms of creations: text, poem, drawing, canvas, montage, photo, interview, etc. that we can include in the zine.
Who can participate? Girls* and young womxn ages 13-25. If you are outside of this age range, you can still participate. Intergenerational mentorship is an important component of the work we do at Girls Action Foundation. In lieu of a piece of art, we will send you a short questionnaire so that you can share your advice with aspiring artists, creators, and makers.
We have extended the deadline, you now have until August 31st to submit. Share and tag us!
Send your artwork to firstname.lastname@example.org

“Activate Change,” was a virtual gathering of girls* programmers and youth leaders. An inspiring group of young womxn leaders from the greater Toronto area led discussions and workshops around youth-led social change and activism in the context of COVID-19.
The recorded videos and slides for each event, and any associated worksheets, are now available to view and download from our website: www.girlsactionfoundation.ca/activatechange
We apologize for the delay in sharing these materials with you all.
Please know that we are still in the process of adding closed captions to each video, in addition to providing translated transcriptions of each workshop in French. We will alert you when those updates are made.
