Girls Rock! DC is a supportive, inclusive, and creative space for girls and non-binary and trans youth of varying racial, ethnic, religious, and socioeconomic backgrounds, abilities, identities, and experiences to develop their self-confidence, build community, rise up, and rock out! We live at the intersection of art, activism, and music education. We host summer camps, workshops, after school programs, and more!
GR!DC includes teachers, musicians, artists, and community organizers. Together we bring diverse approaches to grassroots organizing in Washington, DC and beyond. GR!DC builds upon the experience of our organizers, including musical background, connection to local youth, and social and political organizing. Women, trans people, and gender non-conforming people are so often underrepresented in both mainstream music and the images of our daily lives. The organizers, volunteers, and supporters of the camp are local, relevant role models so that campers see themselves reflected in leadership from their own city and communities.
