PLANNING

As our events grow we are in need of board members and volunteers. Visit our Volunteer page to let us know how you want to get involved.

BLAST FROM THE PAST

This time last year we were getting ready for Change The World With Her 2020. It ended up being the first and last in-person event of 2020.

WHAT OUR GIRLS SAY

“It was SO MUCH FUN!!” said Addie in reference to our “Painting with a Curl” event in August 2020.

Curly Me! Conference!? For Real?

Yes we are planning our 1st Annual Curly Me! Conference to happen in September/October of 2021. We have so much to offer our girls, parents, and community, we felt it was time for this next level event. We have started the planning process and get more and more excited as we get further into it.

If you have any experiences with conferences or just want to serve on a committee, let us know by filling out a volunteer form. If you want more information first, send us an email.

SB 80 Utah Antidiscrimination Act Amendments

If you are familiar with the Crown Act that has been mentioned throughout the Country, you will understand why SB 80 is super important to pass in the 2021 Legislative Session. This bill amends the Utah Antidiscrimination Act to provide protection for immutable traits and hairstyles historically associated with race. For more information on the bill, follow this link https://le.utah.gov/~2021/bills/static/SB0080.html

UPDATE: Unfortunately the bill did not move out out of the Economic Development and Workforce Committee. We thank Senator Kitchen and his team for sponsoring this bill and hope we can revise to join the 2022 Legislative Session.

She's her Space Wings!

Over 3 years ago, Dr. Jeanette Epps was pulled from a NASA mission from what would have been her 1st trip to the Space Station. As of August 2020, she has was reassigned for a 6 month mission on the Space Station to start November 2021. This makes her the first Black woman to LIVE aboard the International Space Station for an extended period of time. We are so happy and excited for Dr. Epps!
