Inauguration Day and Alice’s March for Equality

Girl Scouting empowers girls to make their own decisions, and at GSEP, we support the individual choices made by all of our Girl Scouts. Whether individual Girl Scouts wish to participate in the inaugural parade on Friday, in the Women’s March on Saturday, or any other forms of organized civic activism, we support and encourage girls to take time to discover who they are and develop a strong sense of self. Through connecting with others, girls learn to appreciate the value of diversity. And, individually and collectively, our Girl Scouts take action to help make our world a better place. Our job is to steward them along their personal journeys. We hope you will also respect our girls’ individual decisions.
