The National Women’s Law Center has been working to improve school climate for girls of color.
Through over two dozen events—presentations at conferences, listening sessions, roundtables and webinars—as well as federal and state advocacy, Center staff have been raising awareness of the ways in which girls of color are discriminated against and pushed out of school and the policies needed to address this serious problem.
In addition, the Center is continuing its work on a major research project to be released next spring that will highlight the educational challenges faced by various groups of marginalized girls.
“The Center is so grateful to be part of the Collaborative to share vital information, to feel the support of others committed to improving the lives of women and girls of color, and to harness the power of many towards a common goal.”
