The revived Girl Talk has been incubated, developed, and supported tirelessly by Project NIA, a grassroots organization that works to dramatically decrease the number of children and youth in Chicago who are arrested, detained, and incarcerated.
Girl Talk gratefully acknowledges support from the following organizations and individuals:
The Institute on Research on Race and Public Policy at the University of Illinois at Chicago provided a grant in 2010 which has been invaluable to our work.
Department of Sociology at UIC (for a donation to cover meeting food costs)
Department of Gender and Women’s Studies at UIC (for a donation to cover meeting food costs)
Gender and Women Studies Program at Depaul University (for space)
Female Offender Services program at the Cook County Juvenile Court (for providing snacks for the participants)
Girl Talk would also like to thank the UIC Commuter Student Resource Center (CSRC) and its staff for allowing us to use their new and wonderful space for Girl Talk for our Facilitator trainings and meetings. For more information about the UIC CSRC, please visit their site.
