I Am the Voice: Girls’ Reflections from Inside the Justice System Launch Event
October 25, 2018 - Washington, DC
In October, the Georgetown Law Center on Poverty and Inequality’s Initiative on Gender Justice and Opportunity released I Am the Voice: Girls’ Reflections from Inside the Justice System in partnership with Rights4Girls. This publication, a co-edited compilation of artwork and written pieces by girls from across the country, reflects our philosophy that to truly support girls, we must let them lead by centering their voices.
At our launch event, girls performed original works and works from the booklet that they had selected, and discussed why the pieces resonated with them. See the art compilation here.
