The purpose of this FREE city-wide gathering, hosted by GFAC, is to uplift, celebrate, showcase, and fortify Black girls and other girls of color. Girls get to introduce the social change projects that they worked on in their Girl Action Teams to their communities and the world. This is a celebration of the great work happening in our community; an exploration of the ideas, techniques, and technologies that are driving this change; and an invitation for everyone to get involved in creating a better future for their community. Driven by technology, and inspired by local success stories, girls are partnering in their community with activists, leaders, change-makers, and businesses, and through these partnerships, start to tackle some of our toughest social challenges, answer some of our biggest questions, and create solutions.
