Nakisha Lewis (Girls for Gender Equity), Karla Schickele (Willie Mae Rock Camp for Girls), and Gena C. Jefferson (JAIA Youth Empowerment) discuss gender equality in honor of Day of the Girl to raise awareness for issues for young females.

A long time advocate for race and gender justice, Nakisha has spent the last decade supporting youth and parent grassroots organizing across movements. As the former Program Manager at the Schott Foundation for Public Education, she managed the state-based Opportunity to Learn Campaign in Massachusetts and established the foundation’s Gender Equity portfolio.

Nakisha’s current work focuses on centering Black women and girls in philanthropic dialogue and developing a roadmap for investment in Black and Brown girls. At present she is working with the African American Policy Forum to organize women of color around the country in calling for inclusion in President Obama’s “My Brother’s Keeper” initiative.
