RSVPFacebook Event

At this special Amplify our Sounds event, we will be celebrating several major milestones at Girls Rock Philly! Join us in celebration over food, drinks, and live music!

We will say a bittersweet farewell to diane foglizzo, who in early 2012 was hired as our first staff person and has served as Program Director for 5 years. We will welcome Sam Rise, a local musician, educator and visionary as our new Program Director.

We also want to celebrate an internal transition as our current Creative Director, Andrea Jacome, moves into her new position as Community Organizing Director. This reflects a larger organizational commitment to deepen GRP’s work with local social justice issues. In this critical national moment, we look forward to further centering social justice organizing as part of our work at GRP.

We are also excited to welcome:
–members of our first formal Youth Action Council cohort. In development for over almost 2 years, we are thrilled to have institutionalized our commitment to youth leadership and decision-making.
–Mirangela Buggs and Daizha Jimenez, our two brand new GRP board members. Daizha is our first ever former youth participant to serve on the Board of Directors.

2017 is going to be an amazing year! We look forward to the continued support of our amazing community as GRP continues to grow and evolve.
