- Justice for Black Girls (JBG)
JBG endeavors to elevate the voices of Black girls as the experts and cultivate student activism through our Justice for Black Girls Ambassadors Program. Here institutions of higher learning and grassroots organizations will partner with JBG Ambassadors to engage Black girls in the academic and policy work that centers Black girlhood. JBG recognizes education as liberation and endeavors to combat the universal suppression of Black girls’ experience and the miseducation of Black girlhood through our Black Girlhood curriculum entitled, 4LittleGirls in honor of 4 Black girls who lost their life due to the bombing of 16th Street Baptist Church September 15th 1963. This curriculum will be made available to girls in school and authorized by liberation pedagogy for girls who are incarcerated or system involved. Ultimately JBG is focused on equipping Black girls with tools not authorized by empowerment- focused on developing self help in the midst of structural degradation, but power- the agency to alter the systems that actively marginalize Black girlhood. https://www.justiceforblackgirls.com/new-page-
