In celebration of our 10 year anniversary, we are also excited to announce the official online release of a mini-documentary, "Girls Rock Philly: Building Liberatory Futures through Song & Joy." Utilizing interviews from youth and LRC participants, the video features footage from our 2016 After School Program Spring Showcase! Altogether, the mini-doc not only summarizes GRP programs but it shows what our 10 years of work has built! Video f Special thanks to director and producer Cory Fischer-Hoffman and our friend at Scribe Video Center for making it happen!
