“The Civic Engagement and Writing Lab at CCPSG creates a community that values girls of color, those who are often marginalized, oppressed and undervalued. The Lab will be designed to honor and empower their voices through the revolutionary act of 'writing as change.' Her innate curiosity and discontent with the world around her will be honored by providing her with pathways to her own critical consciousness, action and ultimately empowerment. Our girls will use the power of their pen to craft self-definition and nurture resilience while fostering capacity for social change. Her voice will matter.”
