Saturday in NYC: Kimberlé Crenshaw to Moderate Town Hall Hearing: Breaking Silence - A Hearing on Girls of Color

This Saturday, October 11, for International Day of the Girl, V-Board member Kimberlé Crenshaw, Girls For Gender Equity and The African American Policy Forum will come together in NYC to ask:

Why are girls of color...
• overly-disciplined through suspensions, zero tolerance and arrests in school?
• incarcerated at the highest rates in history?
• disconnected from family & community?
• over-sexualized in the media?
• harmed by abuse, trauma, and violence?
• trafficked and sexually abused?

Join us and hear cis and trans girls explain #whywecantwait.
