The Second Annual State of Women & Girls Address and Young Women’s Assembly is comprised of two major components. The first features keynote addresses by Mayor Eric Garcetti and First Lady Amy Elaine Wakeland, and the presentation of the City of Los Angeles Gender Equity Award. The speeches will be open to invited city leaders and Angelenos from across L.A.
The second component is programming for 600 girls, young women, and trans youth. It will unite these hundreds of young women for an interactive day of storytelling led by the world renowned organization, The Moth. The live event and education program will aim to foster development, visibility, connection and creative expression through the craft of storytelling.
#WomenMoveLA helps create a new path for women struggling to survive through your contribution to the YWCA Bridge Housing Program. You will be part of a committed community answering the call to action from Mayor Garcetti and the First Lady of Los Angeles at their Annual State of Women and Girls Address to provide everyday essentials to those who need them most. We are proud to partner with the YWCA Bridge Housing Program on this critical effort.
