Anti-Racism in Girl Scouts

As Girl Scouts, it is our duty to make the world a better place, and that includes standing against racism, violence, and hate. We understand and share the outrage felt by the country in wake of the shootings of too many Black men and women who have fallen victim to this cycle of hate. We need to reiterate a very important fact: Black Lives Matter.

Enough is enough.

Girl Scouts strives to be a safe space for girls, families, and volunteers. We are fully committed to helping our communities and guiding our girls through this time.

After all, it's in the Girl Scout Law that we will do our best to make the world a better place and be a sister to every Girl Scout.

Together united, we will overcome this adversity. We still have a long way to go, but change starts by having these uncomfortable conversations on a regular basis. This page serves as a jumping-off point for girls, families, and volunteers to facilitate these conversations and learn more about systemic racism.

With time, education, and dialogue, we can use our collective voices, talents, and power to truly make the world a better place.
