We are happy to announce that the Taskforce has chosen our next round of Occasional Papers, to be released in July. The Occasional Papers seek to offer relevant, practical, and useful information about the realities and impact of violence in the lives of young women and girls, innovative programming and approaches, and concrete tools that communities can use to end violence.
We are especially excited that all 3 of the papers will be written or co-written by girls and young women!
The papers feature the work of three organizations that engage young people as leaders to end systemic and interpersonal violence:
- Tiara Epps, Beyondmedia Education, The Chain of Change Project
- Rachel Kibblesmith & youth leaders, CRIME Teens Project, Replacing Trauma & Violence with Youth-Directed Compassion, Respect, Inspiration, Motivation, and Empathy.
- Young Women’s Empowerment Project, The Bad Encounter Line
Congratulations to all of the authors!
