NOTE: This program happened in July-August 2011. If you are interested in participating in future Take Action programs, please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org/~aboutf72 or (415) 839-6779.
We’re about to have some fun and make some meaningful change together!
It’s time for About-Face to begin our Take Action program, where we bring 7-10 teenage girls together (without drama) to take positive, productive action against media that makes us think that we’re not good enough and to encourage ourselves and others to make a strong statement that girls deserve to feel great about their bodies, their talents, and themselves.
It’s 1 1/2 hours per week in San Francisco on Wednesday afternoons. Each week we’ll do an activity about media and body image, then you’ll start brainstorming your action. (Don’t be scared! We’ll help you feel comfortable and confident!)
For examples of what the girls in our program have done before (including their GREAT Covert Dressing Room Action), please go to our action page: http:///mc/actions/

After working with About-Face, you’ll learn how to have more confidence, speak out in your OWN way about this important issue, and get to know other girls who care about the same things you do.
PARENTS/GUARDIANS: E-mail us or call us at (415) 839-6779 to learn more about us and this program.
Can’t wait to see you! Again, just let us know if you are planning to participate — don’t let your spot be given to someone else!
