      One Million for Gender Equity is a Women's History Month
      collaboration between Girls for Gender Equity and Altar Magazine,
      two social justice organizations in Brooklyn, NY committed to
      providing women and girls with the opportunity to engage in fields
      they have traditionally been denied access to such as media, sports,
      film, and technology.

      This fundraising campaign is intended to raise awareness of the
      still-present inequalities between men and women while asking you to
      give just $1 (or more if you like) to help us to continue the work
      that we do.

      One million concerned citizens donating one single dollar will
      * Sports opportunities (basketball, soccer, and boxing) for girls in
      neighborhoods in Brooklyn, Staten Island, and the Bronx
      * Workshops for girls about reproductive justice, health and fitness,
      nutrition, and HIV/AIDS
      * Workshops on sexism, stereotypes, discrimination, and sexual
      harassment for boys and girls in NYC public schools
      * Self-defense programming for girls
      * A social justice publication where women writers and artists have
      a forum to publish their work
      * Opportunities for women filmmakers to showcase their films
      AND MORE!
