The issues that Black girls face rarely receive the attention of the public, policy makers, or researchers. Black girls experience:
Black girls are often seen as less innocent and more grown up than other girls. They require encouragement and support to identify, challenge and overcome issues in the areas of education, health and wellness, juvenile justice, and identity development.
Who will ask the tough questions on behalf of our girls in an effort to disrupt inequality? we.REIGN, Inc will advocate on behalf of and with Black girls centering their voices and their stories. Our professional and organizational growth programming creates space for open dialogue, analysis, and evaluation of the systems and programs that are designed to support, but often harm Black girls. We bring with us solutions from Black girls and we stand with them as they share their ideas with other stakeholders, constituents and allies.
We provide school and community based programming for Black girls and their families. Workshop topics include:
Our summer workshop "We Speak" is designed to inform and prepare our girls to become change agents in their lives and their communities. "Trafficking is Real" was created to raise awareness among Black girls about Human Trafficking, the complexities of sexual exploitation in the Black community and tools for prevention.
We also offer solution-focused parent classes, and organize community awareness forums.
