    #Repost from @chrisvanhollen thanks for standing for girls' right to an education! You can still take action by checking out the link in our bio #GirlsLead17 ・・・ Inspiring meeting with young Marylanders from @girlupcampaign, a United Nations Foundation campaign that advocates for the rights of girls around the globe. At a time when we have an Administration that is pushing for severe cuts to foreign assistance —including to health and education for women and girls—the efforts of Girl Up are more important than ever. Thanks to Girl Up’s passionate advocates for standing up, speaking out, and supporting girls worldwide!

    Today, the stories of refugee girls took center stage at the #DoYou docuseries premiere with Champion @caradelevingne. Refugee girls who we met in Uganda this past year are the focus of the first episode of @puma's docuseries. Girls like @ghazalmia, a Syrian refugee who took the stage with Cara and UNHCR @refugees' Laura Padaon to share how she overcame adversity to attend university and study aviation engineering. Share your story with #DoYouStories! #withrefugees
