We’re proud that Taylor from Girls Inc of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey spoke on a panel in September at the White House on trauma-informed school discipline. Harsh, punitive school discipline practices have led to dramatic increases in rates of suspension for girls, disproportionately girls of color, and placed them at greater risk of school dropout, sexual exploitation, and entering the juvenile justice system. We're grateful to be at the table as we work with legislators to create the supports necessary for girls to thrive in school and in life.

Morgan Cephas, Democratic Nominee for State Representative in the 192nd Legislative District and the Honorable Sheila Woods-Skipper, President Judge of the Court of Common Pleas participated in a panel to discuss their career paths, their role in the political process, and the importance of women in politics. The event culminated in a mock presidential election.
