Comprised of middle school girls and adult muse facilitators, the groups meet weekly to create a coalition of girl allies and to reduce girlfighting by discussing media literacy and how to proactively change the culture through social action projects, such as creating their own 'zine or drafting a sexual harassment policy for their school. The groups also discuss what it means to be an ally and ways to support all girls and each other. The Girls Coalition Groups are based on the curriculum 'From Adversaries to Allies: A Curriculum for Change', authored by Lyn Mikel Brown, Ed.D and Mary Madden, PhD.
