In this current climate where complacency, inaction, and silence are detrimental to our collective wellbeing, the Board of Directors of the Women on the Move Network organization reaffirms its commitment to diversity and inclusivity, and pledges to strive for justice based on truth in our programs and in our actions. We also recognize that we can and will do more, and take steps towards meaningful, forward-looking, and action-oriented strategies that will address racial unity and racial justice in all our activities and curriculum.
Our mission and work toward gender equality has always been, and will continue to be, within the broader context of equity in all areas of human endeavor. And now, we will intentionally highlight and accentuate the dismantlement of racism and ethnic oppression within all aspects of our curriculum.
Tribute to Ruth Bader Ginsburg
Women on the Move Network RE: Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg
We join with the entire country in expressing our sorrow at the passing of
From the teen years on, Justice Ginsburg’s entire life was spent in striving for excellence, justice and respect for the law. She was an incredibly tireless worker for the rights of women and the underserved, as well as a shining example of the highest standards of education, jurisprudence and even family life. Her assiduous work to secure equal protection for women, especially, and others missing from inclusive shelter under the law forever changed the way the American legal system looks at its own functioning, She serves as a role model for girls and young women now and well into the future..
She embodied the qualities and standards our organization seeks to encourage in our Youth Development Programs, and is an inspiration to us all as we work to promote opportunities and advancement for women of all ages.
Our heartfelt thanks to Justice Ginsburg for her unparalleled legacy. May she rest in peace.

Provide girls ages 9 to 17 with an on-going series of age-appropriate experiences designed to give them tools, strategies and understandings which will help the girls make good decisions, build confidence, choose healthy activities and relationships, explore new ideas, make friends and have fun in a safe and welcoming environment.
As a result of continuous participation in the WHO'S YOUR HERO? Program, girls will internalize the core values of respect, integrity, nobility of spirit and a belief in the equality of women and men, and will reflect those values and beliefs in their behavior, attitudes, use of language and personal choices through the teen years and on into young adulthood. They will take their place as strong, confident young women who will be contributing members of a peaceful society.
These topic-centered sessions engage interested women in self-discovery and in discussion and solution-seeking on issues and concerns that many women encounter in life.
