Dear Parents/Guardians & Future Mentees’,
We are so pleased that you found this program. This program is for teen Black Girls from ages 13-17. The program will be held every Saturday in April of 2017 from 1pm-4:30pm. Let’s start by explaining exactly what the Black Girls Fight Back program entails. The idea for the program started with providing a space for black girls to be proactive instead of reactive when it comes to Self Awareness. Self awareness has many leaves on the tree whether it be learning to love yourself, learning to love others, or it could be learning ways to protect yourself. The program will provide workshops on Self Love, Self Care, Building Sisterhoods, all leading up to Self Defense. Statistic shows that 1 out of 6 black girls are molested or raped by a man before the age of 17. This has been an outcry from our community to fix these issues. We often believe a predator is a stranger. We do not look at teachers, our neighbors, or even internally at our own family. We have to collectively come together, and solve our communities problems. I grew up in Southeast, D.C. so I understand the fear of walking around a group of older men being frighten. Most importantly the program is to build relationships with parents, and the community to dig deeper into our internal problems to solve them on one accord. I would like the girls to be able to have Big Sistahs who they can talk to if they need them beyond the program. We all would love the girls to have confidence to do whatever they set their heart desires to and shot for their goals. This program is free and space is limited. I look forward to meeting all of you and your daughters. Please reach out to to email below for any furthur questions.
