Liz Solo and Jen Skywalker are off to Halifax in May to attend the Atlantic regional Zoom In On Girls event - a gathering of individuals and organizations who work with girls and young women. The Zoom events focus on issues related to young women. Participants are invited to share their experiences and knowledge while exploring action strategies. We look forward to meeting and sharing our work with other women from around the Atlantic provinces.
This event was generated by the Girls Action Foundation. R4W members have been working with this wonderful organization since 2006. Please visit their website to find out more their work.

"Fondation filles d’action - Girls Action Foundation is a national charitable organization that inspires and supports the empowerment, leadership and healthy development of girls across Canada. Grounded in research and girls’ realities, our innovative programs address: violence prevention, community engagement, media literacy education, health promotion, anti-racism and healthy sexuality. Our programs combine creative expression, knowledge and skill building activities, mentorship, community action and fun. Through local girls' programs and the national network, Girls Action works to raise awareness and mobilize action towards the elimination of violence and discrimination.
At Girls Action we believe that every girl should have what she needs to participate fully in society. Our activities create opportunities for girls and young women to build their strength, discover their power and gain the confidence they need to bring their gifts to the world. Building a movement of active, engaged young women and organizations across Canada, we envision a new generation committed to creating a just and peaceful world."
