A Powerful Voices Production
2017 Partners: Coyote Central, Young Women Empowered (Y-WE), and Youth Speaks Seattle
Girlvolution is a Powerful Voices production that invites the community to participate in collective dialogue and restorative change facilitated by youth voice and agency. Our Activistas program is a 12 week employment program for 10 girls who will be supported by 10 Adult Allies to create and present an interactive workshop on a social justice topic that impacts them and their community.
This year we are proud to be featuring art from Coyote Central, spoken word poetry from Youth Speaks Seattle, and workshops by Young Women Empowered (Y-WE), photobooth by Youth in Focus and AV services by Vera Project.
