Thank you, California!

Earlier this month we celebrated our 6th Annual Power of Voice benefit with our California community. Thanks to our corporate sponsors and donors, we raised over $200,000 — that’s thousands more girls coming into their power. You helped us far surpass our goal. Thank you.

Our honorees accepted their awards by thanking a person who helped them step into the power of their voice, and inspired us to support our next generation of leaders. You can join in the celebration by thanking someone who helped you with the power of your voice, creating a runway for future leaders, or honoring wellness like our student speaker, Alexandra.

If you didn’t get a chance to give, you can still donate here. Your investments will help us support more educators to bring our culturally responsive curriculum to girls at scale, addressing the internal and external barriers to leadership for all our girls.

Thank you to our special guests, benefit committee, and sponsors. We all have a role to play in helping girls find their voice, and you have shown up in incredible ways.
