Student Leaders Win the Future: White House Campus Challenge for Change

Thanks to everyone who voted for the Gender, Sex, and Sexuality Commons for the White House Champions Campus Challenge for Change! GSSC did not make it into the top 5 but we still had the opportunity to attend the top 5 panel discussion at the White House to meet the other top 15 Champions.

Shout out to all the amazing leaders we met and congrats to the top 5 projects ranging from sustainability gardens, micro-finance initiatives, and programs to end hunger. GSSC loved all of the projects and two of our favorites are Kirsten Foster’s EMPOWER  project that addresses health disparities of women affected by domestic violence, and Grace Phillip’s Local Loans  Project that manages domestic micro-finance no-interest loans, for low-income families in her community to help break the cycles of poverty and dept.
