In an effort to make an impact on our school and community, we have planned many campaigns for the 2018-2019 school year!
W.E. Stand for...positive social-emotional well being!
During November and December, our school bathrooms began displaying positive messages in stalls and around mirrors to remind students that they are smart, loved, confident, joyful, friendly, pure, honest, original, strong, fun and/or unique.
Students who signed a self-affirmations pledge received an affirmations bracelet to wear as a reminder to give themselves a daily reminder that they are smart, loved, confident, joyful, friendly, pure, honest, original, strong, fun and/or unique. We recommend repeating the affirmation 10 times each day to counteract some of our negative thoughts and habits, enabling us to achieve empowerment.
Access to Feminine Products at school
W.E. Stand for...Women's Health
Did you know that women and families who are homeless or live in poverty often have to choose to spend their limited income on food or feminine products?
California assembly bill (AB-10) signed by Governor Jerry Brown in October, 2017 requires public schools that serve 40% or more of students living in poverty to stock restrooms with feminine hygiene products. The bill also prohibits public schools from charging students a fee for menstrual products and reimburses school districts for these costs. We are thankful to assemblywoman Cristina Garcia for her efforts in getting this bill passed! However, some Title I schools have not yet implemented the new law and continue to charge students a fee for these items. Sign our petition to ensure access to feminine products in our LAUSD schools!

Access to Feminine Hygiene Products for LA's homeless
W.E. Stand for...Helping others
Help homeless women this winter by donating feminine hygiene products and other supplies for hygiene kits!
The Search for Male Allies
W.E. Stand for...Menstrual Health Awareness
Men and boys lack awareness and often mock or shame girls. This can lead to a decrease in self-esteem for teen girls simply for something that is natural and biological.
