Join us Friday, June 12th, 6-7:30PM EST for a virtual Graduation Gala celebrating the class of 2020! As we look to the future, we find ourselves asking “Where do we go from here?”. Our mentees may face an uncertain future—in this moment, we all do—but we know they’ll meet it with confidence, resilience, and the lifelong support of the Girls Write Now community.
The show will include:
• a headline commencement speech from Girls Write Now’s Honorary Board Member Tayari Jones, bestselling author of An American Marriage
• a stellar lineup of special guests including Rachel Cargle, Veronica Chambers, Roxane Gay, Alexis Pauline Gumbs, Abbi Jacobson, Jodi Kantor, Rupi Kaur, Lily King, Min Jin Lee and more.
• moving performances of original work by our senior mentees
• a heartwarming evening full of hope for everyone who tunes in!
Every single donation will directly support Girls Write Now’s initiative to ensure that New York City’s young women and gender-nonconforming youth are supported with free programming all summer long.
Presented by the Girls Write Now Circle and our Agents of Change Corporate Partners. All Girls Write Now Circle members and Agents of Change have pre-reserved spots for this event.
