GET INVOLVED IN OUR RALLY PROJECT

SONY DSC

Our 2014 Rally Project is an effort to raise young female voices, create a new generation of activists and promote action for gender equality. This October 11, we want to hold 11 girl-led rallies in 11 U.S. cities. We believe that when young women are given the opportunity and the resources to take on a project like that they are empowered. Donate to our Indigogo fundraising campaign, to raise $5,500 that will be awarded as grants to girls in eleven cities. And create a team, apply for a grant (link to grant application) to lead a rally in your city and download our Rally Toolkit.
