I have been a coalition board member for many years and continue to support the organization because of the tremendous impact it has on the lives of girls and young women in Oregon's child welfare and juvenile justice systems. The coalition has been instrumental in protecting state funding for the programs most critical to young women and in educating those who serve girls in the benefits of gender appropriate programming.

I've worked with this group for several years now - my involvement in the group's activities has grown as my interest has deepened. It's a unique group with a special mission that speaks to me as someone who works with a population that is underserved. But I also just enjoy the company of the others in the Coalition.

The Coalition of Advocates for Equal Access for Girls is a powerful organization. Since 1993, it has championed the rights of girls throughout the state of Oregon. It is now poised to assist other states throughout the nation in developing legislation that will ensure that young women have equal access to services within their states.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

As the former ED of a nonprofit that serves adolescent girls, I found the support & expertise of Coalition members to be invaluable in developing services and programs that sensitively and effaciously meet the needs of the clients that we served.
