Share the Journey: Act Now to Promote Girls Education Around the World

The clock is ticking for the Senate to act. Senators only have a short window before the year ends to pass a critical piece of legislation for vulnerable girls overseas.
Advocacy takes perseverance and you've been there at each step in this bill's process.Over the summer, we pushed key Senators to move on this important bill. Because of our advocacy, the Senate Foreign Relations Committee passed the bill out of committee. However, the Protecting Girls' Access to Education in Vulnerable Settings Act continues to await a vote in the full Senate.
Our collective voices can help ensure vulnerable girls around the world, like refugees, have access to education where they are, which is essential to building a better future and keeping girls safe from human trafficking.
