In March, 2012, we were proud to facilitate the Fight Like a Girl Activist Training group, hosted by Newcomer Women’s Services Toronto. Fight Like a Girl is a two-week paid job in which young women and trans youth addressed issues around anti-racism, gender-based violence, and learned Wendo.

Over the first week, the group of twenty-four started to deconstruct media messages around gender, race, sexual orientation, ability class and violence and had some energizing and insightful conversations about how to create our own media to assert our own expertise on our own lives. The strategized a campaign idea Use Your Voice, and we brought in guest facilitators to give them the skills to produce their own website, podcast, social media strategy, zine and posters.

Armed with all the media-making equipment and expertise we could muster, these girls produced a lot to communicate their important messages. Listen to their podcast, see some spoken word and follow them on Twitter.
