GIRLS ARE POWERFUL
HOW WE DO IT
Girls are divided into issue-based cohorts. A cohort consists of ten girls and two trained, college-aged woman facilitators.
Each cohort works with a local non-profit on specific legislative priorities. Girls can lobby for or against any bill. We just want them to be talking about it! During our 2019 Legislative Program, we partnered with Utah Educational Association (UEA) and Utah Coalition Against Sexual Assault (UCASA).
Girls attend hour-long meetings once a week for eight weeks with their Cohorts. Cohorts will meet on Zoom, a secure, online video chat classroom. Girls are required to participate in two virtual events on Saturdays, and encouraged to attend the legislative session in person. See the curriculum schedule here.
Registration for our 2021 Legislative Program will be opening soon! Stay up to date on all things Girls Lobby by joining our mailing list here.
