My Story

THE 2020 GIRL RISING STORYTELLING CHALLENGE

In the last few months, the COVID19 pandemic has revealed deep-seated racial,  gender and economic inequities. The social impacts are being felt most deeply by people of color, women and girls who are already historically disadvantaged. At the same time, every day extraordinary people across the globe are courageously working towards equity, justice, and a better future.

Now is an important time to listen and learn from each other. We want to highlight the powerful work that you are doing to create a more just and equal world. Whether you are a teenager in Texas organizing dialogues between local police and students; a team of educators in Guatemala delivering learning materials to girls in rural areas; a group of young women in Nairobi distributing health and menstrual hygiene supplies; or an organization in Thailand teaching film-making to young people —   we want to hear your stories and amplify your voice.

Submissions for My Story are officially closed
