Big Fun on GiveBig. Come Meet the Future: Grrl Active!


Proudly introducing our newest leadership team at Reel Grrls: Grrl Active.

On May 10th we are excited to share our GiveBig journey of making new friends with our young feminist leaders at Brownies Troop 44466, to our adult speed mentors, and of course our newly formed members of the Grrl Active leadership team. Our future at Reel Grrls is led by our young people to ensure that our mission supporting young people as they explore, critique and author media through a feminist lens is centered around youth voice.

Reel Grrls believes in young people to lead the Future is Feminist, and is committed to providing assistance to incubate a community space that builds empathy, advocacy and amplification. Come experience it on May 10th at Pyramid Ales! The evening will be filled with food, fun, and inspiring panel dialogue from our Grrl Active members and additionally you will get to meet Troop 44466 who helped us kick-off our GiveBig Pool Challenge – raising over $5k to encourage others to GiveBig!
