Celebrating Hinamatsuri

ResourceFair2014Saturday, the girl-serving community got together to party. The Northwest Girls’ Coalition teamed up with the Seattle Asian Art Museum to host a resource fair for the families purusing the museum’s exhibits. Over a hundred people visited with local girls organizations and learned more about the opportunities for girls in the Northwest. 

Full disclosure: I’m on the Northwest Girls’ Coalition board (I joined in December). Seeing families talking to staff and volunteers from almost 20 organizations was objectively inspiring and exciting. By the end of the day, I was simultaneously exhausted and energized, thinking of all those girls participating in exciting programming. What a rush! 

If you couldn’t be there this year, check out all the fabulous photos on the coalitions’s Facebook page. Better yet, join the Northwest Girls’ Coalition so you never miss another fabulous event! Hope to see you soon.

If you’re looking for programs to participate in or volunteer for, the coalition has you covered there too, with a list of organizational partners and a fabulous calendar.
