Do you want to make a difference in your community and take action in your own life? Do you want to start something fierce? With the help of activists and change-makers from across the country, we’ve put this zine together for young women who want to organize, take action, and change the world.
The second edition of Start Something Fierce includes content from both the Elle Project 2008 and the Indigenous young women’s leadership project. While the Elle Project has been in place for a few years, we now have a new project, Indigenous Young Women: Speaking Our Truths, Building Our Strengths, implemented in partnership with the Native Youth Sexual Health Network (NYSHN)1. We wanted to create a new version of this zine, incorporating fresh perspectives from the Indigenous Young Women’s Gathering that took place in Saskatoon in November 2011.
