A nonprofit organization created by all-female rock band, Antigone Rising, to empower and inspire girls and LGBTQIA kids to pursue careers in male dominated fields.
We uplift kids and build self esteem by sharing our personal stories at outreach workshops and live performances. We include special guests at our workshops from diverse disciplines and backgrounds to create unqiue panels. We award grants and scholarships to students in underserved school districts, and provide kids opportunities through our Girls Rising Music Festival.
Girls & LGBTQIA kids need to see strong role models they can emulate and identify with in positions of leadership. Our outreach workshops aim to do just that by bringing successful women and queer people of all ethnic backgrounds to their attention.
