Members of the Metro & Hilliard Darby Girl Up Club

Members of the Metro and Hilliard Darby Girl Up clubs were hard at work this weekend as they prepare to bring their message of global girls' empowerment to the Ohio Courthouse. On Thursday, September 19th, representatives from both Metro Early College High School and Hilliard Darby High School will meet with a staff member from the office of Rep. Joyce Beatty to discuss the Keeping Girls in School Act (H.R. 2153/S.1071). This bipartisan bill is designed to ensure that U.S. foreign assistance addresses the barriers that keep more than 130 million girls ages 6-17 globally from enrolling, attending, and graduating school. Be sure to follow them on twitter @MITGirlUp and @DarbyGirlUp for updates on this and future events that are changing the face of girls' education worldwide!
