#GirlsPolicyAgenda Community Report Back Meeting
January 23 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
In the last few months, AFG’s Advocacy Committee developed our policy ideas that were derived from our town hall series we held last year to share findings from “Together, We Rise” report and identify community solutions to the issues girls highlighted. We also met with local elected officials, community-based organizations, and youth leaders to further build on the solutions. The issues we are focusing on locally this year are safety for girls on public transportation and supporting young moms. We plan to take lessons learned from the local policy to the state level in the next legislative cycle in 2021.
Before we officially finalize our #GirslPolicyAgenda, we want to get your feedback and additional input. Join us for a community report back event co-hosted by CARAS, an AFG Advocacy Committee member and social services agency in South Santa Clara County to learn more, get detailed updates, and get involved. CARAS will also share updates on their advocacy in the community.
Scheduled speakers include:
- Lizette Mary Diaz, Program Coordinator at CARAS
- Haleema Bharoocha, Advocacy Manager at AFG
