Yesterday, President and Mrs. Obama announced an expansion of the government’s Let Girls Learn initiative – and Girl Rising was there! We are proud to be partnering with the Obamas, the Peace Corps, and others in this movement to educate and empower girls around the world. We’re thrilled about the opportunity to do more of what Girl Rising does best: raise awareness and spark action through storytelling.
The Homefront, a two-hour documentary special for PBS, is scheduled to air on May 25, 2015. This revealing series of intimate portraits of America’s military families will share stories of pride, patriotism, sacrifice and resilience.
Look out for more information and a reminder to tune in this Memorial Day.
