Meet our January/February Change for Charity Partner

Share this post:

Our January and February Change for Charity partner is the Center for Healthy Families, The Black Girls and Young Women’s Collective. This organization supports important work being done to help improve the quality of life of Black girls and young women in Central Ohio.

In 2018, the Columbus City Council approved a resolution to create the Commission on Black Girls, based on the vision of Councilmember Priscilla R. Tyson. The Commission was chartered to initially participate in fact-finding and education to learn more about the current quality of life for Black girls ages 11-22 in Columbus and Central Ohio. The findings of this work resulted in strategies and recommendations to guide an ongoing mission to support Black girls in the community. That ongoing work has resulted in the Black Girls and Young Women’s Collective.

The Collective now works with the Center for Healthy Families’ Advocacy and Public Policy Pillar. It is charged with creating a community standard of care that aims to improve the quality of life for Black girls. By addressing the intersectionality of sexism and racism and searching for a more inclusive and equitable community, the Collective is focused on creating a community where black girls and young women move from surviving to thriving.

The partnership with the Easton Community Foundation’s Change for Charity program helps the Center for Healthy Families, Black Girls and Young Women Collective continue to give a voice to Black girls and young women, ensuring their input is heard by the individuals and institutions that influence quality of life factors, and gaining understanding and support from the community at large.

We are proud to support this important work to help improve the lives of Black girls and young women. You can support this work by parting at one of our Change for Charity parking meters, paying an Easton parking ticket, or making a donation to the organization.
