Over the past few years, YWAT has created and developed a number of resources. We will include the ones that do not fall under our youth-led participatory action research projects in this section. In addition, we have partnered with and sponsored several events that have generated other information that we will share here.

Using Hip Hop to Empower Girls
We hosted two workshops in 2007 with Dr. Carla Stokes who shared her experience with us about how to use hip hop to empower other young women. We will share some of the resources from those workshops with you below.
We invited Dr. Jody Miller to Chicago in May 2008 to present a workshop based on her book “Getting Played: African American Girls, Urban Inequality and Gendered Violence.” We organized this event as a fundraiser for our “sister” organization the Young Women’s Empowerment Project (www.youarepricessless.org).
Below is a powerpoint of Dr. Miller’s excellent presentation.
