Commitment to Action

At women reVamped we believe the most impactful empowerment experiences are intentional.  The successful empowerment of girls is rooted in intentional interventions, particularly when it involves caring adults.  Back in February during our Destroying The Narrative series, participants were given the opportunity to make a commitment to empower a girl.  Their commitments raged from sharing information about the status of women and girls through their social media accounts to mentoring a girl in their community.  Our belief in the importance of everyday people committing to small and large activities to provoke positive change is so strong that we’ve expanded our call to action to include you.  Think about ways you can empower girls and if you are interested in making a commitment, share it below.
