What’s the Girls LEAD Act?

The Girls LEAD Act (S.2766) recognizes and promotes girls’ civic and political leadership as a priority for U.S. foreign assistance efforts – particularly those focused on building strong and inclusive democracies across the globe.

Around the world, girls continue to be excluded from decisions affecting them – their needs invisible and their voices unheard. But girls can be an essential contribution to civic and political discussions at every level – from local schoolboards to national-level policy-making. Supporting girls’ participation in civic and political spaces is key to ensuring resilient and sustainable communities.

You can support girls everywhere to become leaders in their own lives by signing The Girls LEAD Act petition. Then ask your Senator to support the Girls LEAD Act, so girls all over the globe are able to grow healthy, educated, and protected through policies and laws that take account of their needs and priorities!
