Meet the newest members of the 2016 Girl Scout Global Action team! Delaney Browne and Catherine Lavy of Shoreline have been selected to spread awareness and take action to help overcome violence against women and girls.
The Global Action Team is a group of girls in grades 9-12 who will spend a year researching this important topic impacting our local and global communities.
“I became a member of the Global Action Team because it is important to increase awareness of violence against women and girls because it is simply not okay. The more we talk about it the more we can shine a light on such a dark issue.”
- Delaney Browne
Through collaborations with local organizations and community members, Global Action Team members become advocates for women everywhere, and help educate and inspire others to do the same.
“I have always been interested in learning about new topics, especially ones that affect our world so harshly. I want to help spread awareness of the violence against women and children to make sure other girls can have a better understanding of them as well.”
- Catherine Lavy
Their culminating project is a Global Action Summit for girls in grades 6-8, where they teach the girls the importance of advocacy and global competency.
