 “ Empowerment of and investment in girls are key in breaking the cycle of discrimination and violence and in promoting and protecting the full and effective enjoyment of their human rights”   -United Nations Resolution 66/170  In 2011, as the result of youth advocacy around the world, the United Nations declared October 11 as the  International Day of the Girl Child . Its mission is  “to help galvanize worldwide enthusiasm for goals to better girls’ lives, providing an opportunity for them to show leadership and reach their full potential.”  It’s a day when activist groups come together under the same goal to highlight, discuss, and take action to advance rights and opportunities for girls everywhere.  Day of the Girl-US is the United States branch of this global movement. We are an 100% youth-led movement fighting for gender justice and youth rights. Our work to dismantle the patriarchy and fight for social justice is rooted in girl-led activism across the country, using October 11th as a day of national action.  October 11 is not just a day; it’s a movement.  A worldwide revolution.  We want ourselves, and girls everywhere, to be seen as equals, in the eyes of others and in our own eyes.

American Liver Foundation/ Liver Life Walk

         The American Liver Foundation is a non-profit organization that promotes liver health and disease prevention. The mission of the ALF is to facilitate, advocate and promote education, support and research for the prevention, treatment and cure of liver disease
The Liver Life Walk Houston will be the American Liver Foundation - Desert Southwest Division 7th Annual dog friendly walk. Join us and help raise awareness to one of America's growing epidemics, Liver disease!
        Liver Life Walk allows people affected by liver disease to come together and raise critical funds and awareness for the American Liver Foundation, all while having a good time. Each Liver Life Walk location features a festival-type atmosphere including activities for kids, food, entertainment and information about the American Liver Foundation.
        Although liver disease is among the ten major causes of death in the United States, there was no national voluntary health agency devoted exclusively to combating liver diseases until 1976, when the American Liver Foundation was created by the American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases (AASLD). This organization of scientists and healthcare professionals was concerned with the rising incidence of liver disease and the lack of awareness among both the general public and the medical community. The mission, the programs and the services provided by American Liver Foundation complement the great work of AASLD.

Rebel Against Cancer - World Cancer Day 2016

 Purple stands for General Cancer Awareness 

Purple stands for General Cancer Awareness 

A truly global event taking place every year on 4 February, World Cancer Day unites the world’s population in the fight against cancer.

It aims to save millions of preventable deaths each year by raising awareness and education about the disease, pressing governments and individuals across the world to take action. 

Why World Cancer Day is important

  • Currently, 8.2 million people die from cancer worldwide every year, out of which, 4 million people die prematurely (aged 30 to 69 years)

  • World Cancer Day is the ideal opportunity to spread the word and raise the profile of cancer in people’s minds and in the world’s media
