EveryBlackGirl Inc.

was founded as response to the brutal attack of a  BlackGirl  by a school resource officer at Spring Valley High in Columbia, South Carolina in 2015. 

The resulting arrest of the student being assaulted and a classmate, who dared to record the incident and speak out, made the incident at Spring Valley High a perfect example of how school pushout was impacting 

 Black Girls.

Joining with local organizers on the ground,  EveryBlackGirl  rallied against the arrests and demanded all charges be dropped against the arrested youth.

 

 EveryBlackGIrl,Inc.’s  efforts were recognized by local activists seeking to challenge the Disturbing the School law, which allowed for the student's arrests and age requirements for juvenile arrests.

These issues continue to be the core of  EveryBlackGirl’s  social change work. Various campaigns have been designed to ensure

 Black Girls  experience more justice.
