Wednesday, March 8 marks International Women’s Day—and GMR has big plans to make a difference.
The theme this year is #BeBoldForChange, and in an effort to take personal action, each GMR office will host their own activities. To drive change in a serious way, we have chosen to support two organizations dedicated to supporting women: Milwaukee non-profit Grateful Girls and San Francisco-based Girls Inc.
Grateful Girls works to inspire, motivate and encourage young girls, teens and women of all ages who are victims of the sex-trafficking industry. The organization provides short-term housing, counseling and evening classes to help young women in need get back on their feet.
Girls Inc. encourages young women to embrace their full potential as smart, strong, bold women through service and advocacy. The organization teaches girls how to advocate for themselves and their communities, using their voices to promote positive change.
Each GMR office will offer unique and engaging opportunities to get involved and #BeBoldForChange.
