Black Girl Freedom Week 2021
Black Girl Freedom Week is a celebration that centers the dreams, power, and leadership of Black girls to ensure a safe, free, and thriving future.
Hosted by Black Girl Freedom Fund, our inaugural Black Girl Freedom Week (February 14-20, 2021) was a week-long celebration of Black girls and gender-expansive youth, and what is possible when we invest abundantly in their dreams, their power, and their leadership, and work together to co-create a future where they are safe, free, and thriving.
We encourage you to Take This Survey and share it with other Black girls and gender-expansive youth!
And if you missed any of the inspirational, beautiful conversations, you can watch them again with these video links below:
