resistance, rebellion, self-love, and girls interested in reading,
studying, confronting injustice. In short, this film is subtle, moving,
nuanced, powerful, and right on. What I love so much about the film is
that every topic I am concerned about, every topic I teach about,
appears in the film."

The Outreach and Community Engagement Campaign for GOING ON 13
consists of three equally important parts: festival screenings and
public television broadcast, community screenings, and an interactive,
social-network website for girls. This page is dedicated to
sharing with you some ways that you can use the film in your home,
school, and community.
We want you to USE the film - in your classrooms and school districts, in your universities, in your home, and in your after-school programs - with girls, your students, your staff, your local politicians and your friends and family. GOING ON 13 presents an alternate and perhaps more realistic view of girls and their families in our urban communities. Screening the film in all of the ways that you can, will ignite a dialogue and support all our efforts to 1) Create a space for girls to share their experiences of puberty - as experts on their own lives; 2) Engage girls and those who care about them in an inter-generational dialog; and 3) Inspire communities to develop programs, policies and spaces that listen to the real needs of real girls.
Dawn and Kristy are available to participate in a screening for a small fee and the cost of the film. We also know great youth development organizations all over the USA who may be interested in co-hosting a screening. Contact us for more information at firstname.lastname@example.org
Check for screenings and stay tuned for more info, or sign up on our e-mail list to receive monthly updates.
