Girl Scouts and YWCA Greater Baltimore Unite For Equality with New Racial Justice Patch
Date:2/10/2013

Baltimore (PRWEB) February 10, 2013

Girl Scouts of Central Maryland (GSCM) and the YWCA Greater Baltimore have partnered to create a Racial Justice patch packet for girls in grades 4-10. As girls complete the activities associated with earning the patch, they will gain an awareness of and the skills to combat racial injustice in their personal lives, community and country. Both organizations have a long-standing commitment to equality and empowerment for girls and women.

“We are proud to partner with the YWCA to address this issue,” stated Traci A. Barnett, CEO of Girl Scouts of Central Maryland. The Girl Scout organization has been an inclusive organization for decades, Barnett notes, inviting girls of all races, ability and backgrounds to be a part of this worldwide Movement. Barnett added that in 1917, Girl Scouts began establishing troops for people of color and in 1922 the first Latina troops were formed in Houston, Texas. Girl Scout troops also supported Japanese-American girls in internment camps in the 1940s and by the mid 1950s Girl Scouts was leading the charge to fully integrate all of its troops. Because of these efforts, in 1956 Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. called Girl Scouts "a force for desegregation." When Girl Scouts’ founder, Juliette Gordon Low, declared Girl Scouts "something for the girls of America and all the world," she meant it, said Barnett. “Something for everyone” has been at the heart of Girl Scouting from its earliest days.

Mary Chesnut, CEO of the YWCA Greater Baltimore said, “I cannot imagine a better fit for racial justice work than a partnership of the YWCA and Girl Scouts.” Nationally, the YWCA has been a leader in the struggle for racial equity and justice since its inception in the United States in 1858.
