Core to the work of YWFC is amplifying the voices, experiences, power & influence of systems-involved girls, women and TGNC people toward shifting the narrative & growing support for the change we want. In addition to producing and publishing our own research and analysis, YWFC leaders are trained to participate in social media, produce op eds and articles, publicly speak, speak out and produce and perform their own writing, poetry, performances and artwork.

YWFC is a “thought leader,” contributing valuable strategy for systems transformation, program development and movement building. The promise of the Center has always been a new and revolutionary way of making change in the world that is grounded in the lived experiences and leadership of system-involved girls, women and TGNC people. Changing the narrative is a crucial part of building the road towards that transformation.
