Women Take the Floor
On Monday, November 11, 2019 Officer Gales and Officer Andre took members of G.R.O.W. (Girls Reflecting Our World) mentorship program to the Museum of Fine arts. After the museum the group had lunch with the Officers where they participated in a youth dialogue sponsored by PAL, where they discussed different artists, art works and things they learned from the experience. The young ladies were also thrilled to have had the opportunity to leave words and drawings of their own on the wall inside the “Women take the floor” exhibit.
