Word on the Hill: Focus on Girls
A briefing entitled “Creating Opportunities for Girls to Thrive and Learn” is taking place on Capitol Hill today. It’s co-sponsored by Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine and Reps. Susan W. Brooks, R-Ind., and Bonnie Watson Coleman, D-N.J.
The event is hosted by Girls Inc., YWCA USA, and Girl Scouts of the USA. The groups hope to create a series of briefings focused on issues facing girls and young women.
The briefing will be in the Russell Senate Office Building, Room 326 from 12:30 to 2 p.m. Look out for Girl Scouts roaming the halls throughout the day. No word if they’ll be packing cookies.
