​​“Black Girl Freedom Week is a dedicated time and place to nourish and foster community and belonging for girls who have few spaces to strengthen their identity as leaders, change-makers and visionaries,” says Dr. Morris, executive director of Grantmakers for Girls of Color. “We launched Black Girl Freedom Fund because we know that investing in Black girls and women’s leadership, innovation, wellness, and advocacy, and JOY is necessary for our collective freedom.”
