Girls Give Back Conversation cards were designed and created to initiate deeper conversations among women, men, and other communities. It’s crucial to be able to have a safe space to share your thoughts and effectively work towards creating solutions. Through these questions, we hope people will become more comfortable sharing and listening to a variety of different answers in order to inspire more thoughtful thinking in themselves.

Understanding Middle Eastern Relations: Palestine
Girls Give Back Boston held a national event to shed light on the rising tensions in the Middle East regarding the tragic events taking place in Palestine. This topic is one that many people aren't educated on. GGB wanted to create a space for people of all ages to ask questions and share their thoughts and emotions. We were joined by a Political Scientist and At-Large City Councilor Julia Meija. This was a healthy and emotional discussion as we engaged in historical, current and intellectual conversations.
Girls Give Back Boston launched our first middle school chapter to ensure we are creating space for girls of all ages to feel heard and to work on projects that are relevant to them. This chapter and program provides mentors from GGB to the middle school girls to better navigate their journey. This also gives younger girls an opportunity to expand their global awareness and be apart of a community that is there for them!
