Today is World #RefugeeDay and we're calling on YOU to take action for refugee girls like Sarah. Sarah fled conflict in South Sudan and now lives in a refugee settlement in Uganda. She loves learning English and wants to be a journalist when she grows up. For #RefugeeDay, tell your member of Congress to support HR 2408 so that girls like Sarah can go to school. Take action at our link in bio and share why you stand #withrefugees in the comments!
Because all girls deserve a life full of love and joy. Happy #Pride Month! P.S. If you're wondering about the black and brown stripes, this #LGBTQ flag was designed by #AmberHikes, a black queer woman. The stripes represent LGBT individuals of color, a group that can often be overlooked within the overall LGBT umbrella. 🏽🏾🏼 #PrideMonth

Hi everyone, it's Spencer showcasing some of my highlights from the Classy #collaborative17! I was absolutely blown away by the opening speakers, especially @adamjohnfoss who talked about mass incarceration and how prosecutors can be the ones to end this human rights abuse. We all spent time in The Lab learning about some of the awesome innovations helping people around the world, and experiencing virtual reality thanks to @nexusfund and @nothingbutnetsofficial. We're closing out this life-changing day with an interview with @feministabulous! Tune in tomorrow to our Instagram and Twitter, and all of @classy_org's social media, to watch what happens tomorrow!

"I want every girl to have opportunities, all the opportunities in the world: to have access to those opportunities, to have a voice, to have strength, to have support to have love, and to have happiness. I hope every girl will have freedom, and find courage. I hope she has the right to say no, the right to say yes. I hope every girl will have the knowledge that whatever they set their heart and minds on, that they can do anything that they want.⠀
When the girls we’ve been meeting in Uganda saw our “You see a girl, I see the future” T-shirts, their faces lit up and that’s exactly how I felt when I first saw it because that is what the future needs. That is what this world needs." - @caradelevingne ⠀

"[As a mentor] some of the workshop topics we talk about are self-esteem, why we should love one another and how to prevent violence. Preventing violence is one of the important workshops topics [we discuss] because all the girls here have experienced violence in their own families." - Claudia, mentor. ⠀
In countries like #Guatemala where poverty and inequality are prevalent, indigenous girls are by far the most disadvantaged and vulnerable group. Through the efforts of #mentors like Claudia, she is on her way to empower the next generation of girls leaders. @unfpa Full blog in bio link.
