Black Girls Matter: Girl Scouts for Black Lives
In early 2020, looking for a way to process their grief over the George Floyd murder, Morgan and Makayla attended a peaceful protest in California. Shortly after that, the girls saw bad behavior such as theft and vandalism happening at other protests around the country. In true Girl Scout fashion, they decided to do something about it, and Girl Scouts for Black Lives was born.
During our hour with these inspiring Girl Scouts, we will hear more about the importance of peaceful protest and explore ways that youth can be change makers in the world. There will even be an interactive/hands-on activity to help connect your Girl Scout journey with advocacy. Everyone is guaranteed to walk away inspired to make the world a better place!
Who: Open to Girl Scout Juniors, Cadettes, Seniors, Ambassadors, and adult volunteers; younger girls can attend, but must be accompanied by a parent/guardian
