Support Girls Preventing Sexual Assault

June 29, 2010

Aishah Simmons, creator of No! The Rape Documentary, a documentary on sexual assault against black women, asks for financial support of The Girl/Friends Summer Institute, a sexual assault prevention and sexual health education program for teen girls in Chicago.  The Girl/Friends Summer Institute is a project of A Long Walk Home, Inc, established by Salamishah Tillet and Scheherazade Tillet.

Last year’s pilot program was such a huge success that they doubled the number of applicants and will extend the program to three-weeks, train 15-girls, and offer them an increased stipend of $600.00.  They are working to raise $1800.  Help them get there!

PLEASE DONATE HERE!

Here is a slide show of the institute’s work from the summer of 2009:
