    Girls' Voices Now

    Girls' Voices Now (GVN) amplifies the voices of 24 young women (age 14-18) from low-income and underrepresented communities in Los Angeles by teaching documentary filmmaking, leadership, collaboration and critical thinking skills. During the program, participants learn to create their own short film and to use that medium to affect positive social change in their lives, communities and beyond. GVN culminates with a public premiere screening, where participants invite audience members to get involved through calls to action.
