Girl Scouts support healthy media act!

Last week, eighteen high school Girl Scouts from Girl Scout Council of the Nation’s Capital participated in Girl Advocacy Day on Capitol Hill to encourage Congressional support for the Healthy Media for Youth Act. The Healthy Media for Youth Act (H.R. 4925) is a bipartisan bill that promotes healthy media messages about girls and women for the benefit of all youth.
The Healthy Media for Youth Act would provide for the establishment of a National Task Force on Girls and Women in the Media, to promote media literacy and youth empowerment programs, and to authorize research on the role and impact of depictions of girls and women in the media.
Join the Girl Scouts Advocacy Network today and encourage your U.S. Representatives to be a voice for girls and support H.R. 4925!
