Empowering Girls to Lead Our Future.
Aspiring, educating and empowering young females to lead culture and policy changes for a transformative society.
Brown Girl Woke is on a mission to transform young minds and provide the new generation with the resources they need to become confident and independent thought-leaders.
With you by our side, we stand stronger. Contributions to BGW in any amount will help create once in a lifetime opportunities a reality for underprivileged Samoan youth.
We envision a world where all girls, regardless of race or socioeconomic background, have the opportunities and resources to succeed and achieve their goals.
Recently, there has been an increase in deportations of Samoan & Tongan families in Sacramento, Modesto, and the greater Bay Area. In response, BWG will be training their youth to lead Know Your Rights workshops with experienced immigration & deportation mentors.
Using performance arts “Spoken Word” technique to help students ages 14-25 to speak out about taboo issues, BGW has made a team of amazing students tackling issues on domestic violence/sexual assault, politics, religion, corruption, teen pregnancy, HIV/AIDS, LGBTQ, etc.
BGW provides opportunities for young women to participate in four main endeavors: After School Girl Program Ages 10-13, Young Women Forum 13-25, Emerging Leaders Young Men and Young, Women Regional & National Training and Conference.
