NONPROFIT SPOTLIGHT                                               
           Stand Beside Her
           North Mississippi


Growing up is not easy. It never has been. Girls in particular have always faced certain obstacles - negative messages that question their looks, talent, intentions,and ability to succeed. Today, with unrelenting technology, those messages come faster and more furiously than ever. The girls on the receiving end of those harsh words and messages grow into women who must compete for their rightful place in the workplace, in society, and at home.

Enter the Stand Beside Her North Mississippi Coalition. This coalition is part of the nationwide Stand Beside Her Movement, which "aims to end competition and comparison and create more collaboration and support among girls and women."




The coalition seeks to bring together organizations and individuals who want to support girls and women as they work to break down barriers, overcome obstacles, and strive to achieve their dreams. Working collaboratively, everyone who is part of the coalition can provide support in any number of ways: resource sharing, referrals, networking, and the list goes on.



Picture this: 
The coalition goes into a low-rent housing complex where many single mothers live. Agency A teaches a workshop on financial literacy. Agency B offers job search skills. Agency C conducts a nutrition class. Agency D explains the importance of reading to children and attending school every day. Meanwhile Agency E meets with adolescent girls to build self-esteem, self-awareness, and self-respect. And Agency F provides childcare with age-appropriate activities.

This is just one example of the impact the coalition can make. The possibilities are unlimited!




The North Mississippi regional coalition is just getting off the ground. Any interested individuals or nonprofits are invited to attend the first meeting on Wednesday, December 4, at 2:00 in the Carpenter Room at the CREATE Building (213 West Main Street, Tupelo).
