Girl Scouts of Central Maryland (GSCM) and the YWCA Greater Baltimore have partnered to create a Racial Justice patch packet for girls in grades 4-10. As girls complete the activities associated with earning the patch they will gain an awareness of and the skills to combat racial injustice in their personal lives, community and country. Both organizations have a long-standing commitment to equality and empowerment for girls and women.
Founded in 1883, the YWCA Greater Baltimore is dedicated to eliminating racism, empowering women, and promoting peace, justice, freedom, and dignity for all.
The YWCA’s current programs including supportive housing for homeless women and families and affordable childcare for working families in Baltimore City, Baltimore County, Harford County, and northern Anne Arundel County. Upcoming programs will address racial justice and women’s economic advancement.

In gratitude for her award, and driven by a commitment to improve the lives of others, Marian has arranged for the YWCA Greater Baltimore to receive $18 from each of her sales for 18 days after Leader Lunch (May 3-21). All funds will benefit YWCA programs.
