THE "WHY" BEHIND NWAGG

THE NWA GIRL GANG STORY

Many experiences have led to the creation of the NWA Girl Gang, but the inspiration behind the NWAGG community and organization is because of a ten year old girl named, Eva.

"Eva was born with Down Syndrome. Since the moment Eva was born, I have been advocating for inclusivity, accessibility, and equal opportunities for Eva and others like Eva. Those that belong to our disabled community, our neurodiverse community, and all other marginalized communities that lack representation. Northwest Arkansas presented to be the perfect place to establish a community organization with Eva in mind. I wanted to grow a community that Eva "as an adult", could be a part of. A community that she could feel included, valued, and seen in... one that she could connect with. I wanted to create a community that celebrated her, empowered her, supported her, and fostered her talents. That organization became the NWA Girl Gang.

What is NWA GIRL GANG really? It is my own version of "adult girl scouts" inspired by my own upbringing in the Girl Scouts of the USA, and Eva's experiences as a scout through this famous and 100+ year old youth organization.

Built on the foundation of accessibility, inclusivity, and anti-oppression, NWAGG has become so much bigger than Eva and others with disabilities. It has grown into a community of people looking to feel included in their community sharing in diverse experiences!

Girl Gang exists for those that seek to feel included, valued, seen, and supported in their communities. Every networking event, entrepreneurial opportunity, and programmed event is designed to be accessible and to encourage inclusivity, no matter one's abilities, sexual orientation, race, ethnicity, abilities, physical differences, size, social economic status, or current health status.
