Welcome to our blog! Girl Talk is continuing to grow stronger to better support the young women detained at the JTDC. We will be updating our blog and tweeting more info soon!
In the meantime, here are some campaigns and organizations:
- YES TO COUNSELORS, NO TO COPS: A coalition of organizations and people across Chicago who are asking Chicago Public Schools to pass a resolution that would state any new school safety funding received from Federal grants will be used to hire COUNSELORS NOT COPS.
- Suspension Stories: Challenging the school to prison pipeline.
- VOYCE Project: Youth collaborating to fight for educational justice.
- Young Women’s Empowerment Project: A member based social justice organizing project that is led by and for young people of color who have current or former experience in the sex trade and street economies.
Of course, there are many other wonderful groups doing amazing work. Look in our blogroll for more!
