NOW launches GoFundMe to inspire girls with a viewing of female empowerment film.
In honor of Women’s History Month, the Baltimore Chapter of the National Organization for Women (NOW) is raising funds to send 800 Western High School students to a private showing of A Wrinkle in Time at the Senator Theatre on March 21.
Western High School is the oldest all-girls public high school in the country and is renowned for its academic excellence. Nonetheless, the school is not immune from the budgetary woes of Baltimore schools.
The filmmaker of A Wrinkle in Time set out to create a film with a diverse cast that shows girls that they can save the world by relying on their individuality and strength. These girls will be our future; they deserve to be inspired. NOW Baltimore intends to send the freshman, sophomore, and senior classes of Western High to the screening, which will leave a quiet setting for the juniors to take their PSATs.
Every dollar contributed helps make the trip a reality. For more details about donating to the fundraiser click on the link: https://www.gofundme.com/weste
