Girls Advocacy

At SPARK, we know that girls are experts in their own lives–and we want everyone else to know it, too. That’s why a major part of our activist work has been  media and advocacy training. SPARK girls have been advocates for girls’ issues in media, at conferences, in workshops, and basically anywhere else you can think of where there might be a microphone. Here’s a look at some of the great talks, TV and radio appearances, and workshops that SPARK girls have delivered.
