Artists, community organizations, and local politicians will participate, offering inspirational performances and important information to attendees about a wide variety of topics –responding to street harassment, HIV/AIDS, self defense, youth leadership, every day activism, ending police violence,reproductive justice, and more.

Girls for Gender Equity’s Sisters in Strength teen interns will also be presenting the findings from their groundbreaking research on sexual harassment in NYC schools. As the first high school lead Participatory Action Research project on the topic,their goals are to raise awareness about students’ experiences of harassment and make recommendations for change.Girls for Gender Equity is forming a coalition to address this crucial issue, and extends an invitation to organizations interested in participating in this effort.

We fight for gender equity because women have the right to be safe and respected. And we celebrate the efforts of organizations and artists alike who call for change, equality, and justice on a dailybasis. Girls for Gender Equity is a grassroots organization that advocates for the rights of girls and women by providing them with opportunities to live self-determined lives and organizing to affect social change.
