Support Travis County Girl Squad

In the US, Covid-19 has impacted Black communities disproportionately. This project aims to provide sustaining support to one vulnerable cohort of that population: Black teenage girls in Travis County, Texas, who have had experience with the juvenile justice system, have an incarcerated parent, and/or a family that has been negatively impacted by the pandemic. The project, Travis County Girl Squad in partnership with Hearts2Heal, provides each girl in the program with grocery gift cards, a monthly stipend, and a laptop so she can continue her education or job search. Participants are matched with a local Black woman mentor and receive emotional support through monthly sessions with Black women psychologists.

MEASURE is an Austin-based organization that launched the Innocence Initiative, a multi-pronged approach to eliminate the “adultification bias” that impacts the lives of American Black girls.
