Girl Scouts Advocacy Network / 100th Anniversary Coin

Jun 05, 2009 Posted in Newsroom, Press Releases

Over 5,000 teens, volunteers, staff, alumnae and friends have joined the Girl Scouts Advocacy Network to champion legislation and educate policy makers about issues affecting girls.
 
Currently, the Advocacy Network is being used to help pass legislation which will enable us to have a commemorative Girl Scout coin in honor of our 100th anniversary. Five other organizations are also vying for a coin in 2011, so we must work quickly to secure enough congressional support to help pass the Girl Scouts of theUSA Centennial Commemorative Coin Act.
 
Thanks to those who have already registered to the Advocacy Network, more than 14,000 e-mails have been sent to congress asking for their support. We continue to make progress but still need additional sponsors.

To see if Pennsylvania’s elected officials are co-sponsors, see the links below:
