Apply for CSSP's Accelerating Change Award
May 8 at 12:00 AM - May 8 at 12:00 PM
The Center for the Study of Social Policy seeks to honor innovative initiatives that reach diverse populations of cisgender and transgender young women and girls of color and create opportunities for their well-being and success. These innovations disrupt the trajectory experienced by cisgender and transgender young women and girls of color from the compounding and often negative effects of gender and racial discrimination, personal and community violence and involvement in foster care, juvenile justice and other intervening public systems.
This award celebrates the most compelling and creative interventions making a difference in young women and girls’ everyday lives. Selected recipients will join a network of like-minded partners to share ideas and help accelerate positive change and promising futures for women and girls of color nationally.
Nominees will submit a brief online application. Initiatives may nominate themselves. Finalists will be interviewed by an expert panel with experiences in intervening systems. The application deadline is May 8, 2017.
