STATEMENT FROM THE WORLD ASSOCIATION OF GIRL GUIDES AND GIRL SCOUTS
Our Movement represents ten million girls and young women from 150 countries, many from Black communities that have faced oppression, persecution, discrimination, injustice and violence because of their skin colour.
We condemn systemic and structural racism against Black people in all forms and we stand by every individual who has suffered this injustice. Girls’ and women's experiences of racism must be listened to, believed and amplified. To our Black members, staff and volunteers, we see you. We hear you. We state clearly that there is no room for racism in our Movement. Black Lives Matter.
