I am so excited to be walking in the 7th Annual Sojourner Truth Walk: Celebrating Girls' & Women’s Leadership! Money raised for this walk will support Camp Sojourner, a nonprofit leadership program for Philadelphia girls ages 8-18, which offers year-round leadership development including mentoring, service projects, creative arts, nature hikes, college tours, and a one-week overnight camp (girlsleadershipcamp.org
Camp Sojourner, Girls’ Leadership Camp helps Philadelphia girls, regardless of their economic background, have the opportunity to take charge of their own lives and be agents of positive change in their communities. All programs are offered on a sliding scale, with significant scholarships.
Please consider joining me for this event and walking in the streets of West Philadelphia to celebrate girls and women leaders. There will drummers and face painters and snacks and all around awesome speakers and participants. With every event we gain FRIENDS, too, so even if you can't contribute, you can still come meet the fierce individuals that make up this organization Or, if you know you won't attend, please consider sponsoring me in ANY AMOUNT and help support Philly girls!Every child deserves an opportunity to participate in something so magical as Camp Sojo!
More info to follow over the course of the week--be prepared!
These are the leaders we were taught to raise up and support, as was done for us.
