#BlackGirlsMIA boldly centers the lives, lived experiences, and voices of underserved girls of color in Miami-Dade County.
Black Girls Matter
The Miami Black Girls Matter Coalition seeks to address the many dangerous odds facing young women of color in America. From public education to the criminal justice system, the various institutions that come in contact with black and brown youth fail to address issues that disproportionately impact young women and girls of color.
Through a series of Black Girls Matter workshop circles, we've created radical and safe spaces for black girls to share their experiences of school pushout, suspension, and criminalization. The #BlackGirlsMIA curriculum uses storytelling, restorative practices and artistic expression as vehicles of transformation that spark youth leadership and development.
