Just two years ago, the United Nations declared October 11 as the International Day of the Girl Child to raise awareness about all issues concerning gender inequality around the world. It’s a day when activist groups come together under the same goal to highlight, discuss, and take action to advance rights and opportunities for girls everywhere.
Join Girls Inc. of Tarrant County in celebrating the International Day of the Girl with a March on Main Street and after-party in Sundance Square. Women and girls from all over Tarrant County, including young women from the Young Women’s Leadership Academy, will walk together from the Fort Worth Convention Center to the Courthouse where a proclamation for the day will be read aloud by Mayor Betsy Price. Participants are invited to continue celebrating with a party in Sundance Square. Your participation fee of $25 includes a t-shirt and admission to the party. All proceeds support Girls Inc. of Tarrant County and the mission to inspire all girls to be strong, smart, and bold.
I will meet you in front of the Fort Worth Convention Center at 2:30 p.m. on October 10, 2014. We will begin walking to the Courthouse at 2:45 p.m. The proclamation will be read at approximately 3:00 p.m. and the after-party will begin at 3:30 p.m. Below is the link to register. So find your gal pals, your mentees and let’s walk down Main Street because we want ourselves, and girls everywhere, to be seen as equals, in the eyes of others and in our own eyes.
