SPARK Movement is a girl-fueled, intergenerational activist organization working to ignite and foster an antiracist gender justice movement to end violence against women and girls and promote girls’ healthy sexuality, self-empowerment and well-being.
By providing feminist, girl-focused training, consulting services, curricula and resources, SPARK aims to arm activists, educators, community leaders, and girls themselves to foster coalitions and partnerships in order to ignite and support a global young feminist movement.
When Dr. King spoke, "True compassion is more than flinging a coin to a beggar; it is not haphazard and superficial. It comes to see that an edifice which produces beggars needs restructuring." We are committed to joining the resistance and fighting for a culture shift, a paradigm upheaval and urgent need to change the structures that benefit those with power and crush those without. We hope to share the voices and stories of young people as they respond to and get re-motivated by Dr. King's words. The revolution might not be won in our lifetime, so we need to keep the torch lit for the next generation!

We are proud to partner with the USDAC to offer two resources:
Our Young Voices for Justice Toolkit is full of activities that inspire and guide kids and young people to take action. Please send us examples of the vibrant, inspiring and creative actions launched by kids (and their allies) and share them through video, blogs and photos.
AGENDA is a plan and a toolbox for young social change makers and those who support them. It offers 20 different ways you can take action in your schools and communities. And, for each, Spark Movement provides extended examples and additional information specific to sexual violence prevention (just click on the gray circle on the upper right of each page).
