Stand Up for Girls is an annual day of action in honor of the International Day of the Girl, which happens on October 11th. On this day we mobilize our HerStory community and supporters to host Story Summits, local events led by trained mentors and volunteers that allow women and girls to share their stories and learn from one another's experiences. Together we raise our voices on behalf of all the world's girls so that they can build fierce, fearless futures, lit from within. Barbe Elementary School has partnered with University United Methodist Church celebrating International Literacy Day. Each girl at Barbe Elementary School will share HerStory.
