About Girl Be Heard: 6 out of 10 girls growing up in the U.S. will experience physical or sexual violence in her lifetime. 34% of girls become pregnant before age 20. For too many girls in this country, the threat of being trafficked is all too real. It’s important for girls to tell their stories and encourage others to do the same. Girl Be Heard uses theater to help young girls find their strength and realize their potential by helping them express their anger, fears, hopes, and dreams so that they can channel those emotions into maturity and empowerment. These stories are developed into ensemble performances to raise awareness about domestic and global issues affecting women and girls. Girl Be Heard has performed at the White House, State Department, United Nations, TED
