GFB Morgan is so excited to be given the opportunity to work with high school students in Illinois next month! It is so impactful to get the Girls Fight Back message across BEFORE college, as we have witnessed with the many 6-12th graders we have had the pleasure of working with this year! Morgan will be teaching the terminator tango at three Illinois high schools in one day (Glenwood, Springfield and Township) – go Morgan! The Chicago Tribune has written this article in praise of the program. We have had a long history of teaching district 214 to fight like girls, this is our fourth time back in just two years! Can’t wait!

The 6th-8th grade ladies at the Laraway School in Joliet, IL are so dangerous! It was an honor to do my first Girls Fight Back! presentation for these fierce students who rocked the Terminator Tango (thanks GFB Leah!). I would like to thank Kristen Rojas for organizing this wonderful GFB event for the female students and their parents – we had a fantastic turnout! Also, a special thanks to our “Scary Bad Guy”, Brian Johnson, who was relieved when I assured him that a full suit of amour was not going to be necessary at any point during our presentation. This talk was a special opportunity for our organization to connect with a younger audience, which only emphasized how universal the GFB message is for all of us, regardless of age, because we are all worth fighting for! – GFB Morgan
