Talk With a Teen Girl Today

Adolescence is challenging, and teens today often feel invisible and unheard. That is why I’m partnering with Crittenton Services of Greater Washington to give you an opportunity to "Talk with a Teen Girl Today.”

Please join me on Wednesday, February 22 from 5:30 pm to 7:00 p.m. at the Silver Spring Civic Building at Veterans Plaza to listen to a panel of teen girls from Crittenton programs in Montgomery County speak out on the issues they face in their schools, homes, and lives. We will also share results from a survey that teen girls developed on the issues affecting their peers and additional facts and figures on the lives of girls in Montgomery County.

I was speechless when girls from Crittenton programs shared the unique obstacles they face in the County today. The good news is that all of us, whether we have daughters of our own or not, can do something to help. Crittenton Services has effectively promoted the healthy development of Montgomery County’s girls for nearly thirty years, and I’m grateful for their leadership on this important project.

Please join me not only in listening to these amazing teen girls, but also in learning the simple things that you can do to make a difference in their lives. I look forward to seeing you there.
