Alliance for Girls champions the leaders and voices that support young women and girls.
Who We Are
Alliance for Girls (AFG) is an association of about 60 Bay Area organizations and leaders serving 92,000 girls. AFG provides a unique contribution to the Bay Area in acting as a convener, educator and advocate for girls and the people and organizations who serve them.
Bay Area girls are disproportionately affected by lack of physical activity, sexually transmitted diseases, rape and sexual harassment, negative body image, eating disorders, depression, under-enrollment in computer education courses and single teen parenthood (Girls Report, San Francisco Department on the Status of Women). There are over a hundred organizations and hundreds of leaders in the Bay Area that are working to reverse these trends. By leveraging our respective resources and common goals, we can ensure every girl has the political and social support she needs to thrive.
Alliance for Girls' vision is of a Bay Area that supports girls' healthy development and prepares them to be tomorrow's leaders and change-makers.
Alliance for Girls champions the leaders and organizations that empower and support Bay Area girls through advocacy, research, leadership development and connection.
