Hello GSSNE Community,
As the new CEO and Board President of Girl Scouts of Southeastern New England, we are committed to creating a more inclusive, just world where all human rights are valued. As we process the implications of last week's Supreme Court ruling, we are compelled to speak out. Access to healthcare and body autonomy in decision making affects everyone, including our Girl Scout community. As a community, we stand by those who are choosing to challenge this ruling as inequitable.
For over 110 years, Girl Scouts has championed girls who choose to use their voices to advocate for causes they care about. Girl Scouts is driven to help youth develop the self-confidence and good decision-making skills that will result in wise choices in all areas of their lives. In our respective roles, along with our incredible employees and volunteers, we have the extraordinary privilege to build Girl Scouts of courage, confidence, and character who in turn, make the world a better place.
We hope our work empowers the next generation of leaders to be the changemakers our society so desperately needs now more than ever—leaders ready to stand up to all levels of injustice. Please join us on this journey.
-Dana & Janice
