I'm so happy you're visiting!
Chicks Who Give a Hoot is a movement. It's a collective. It's a journey. It's a place to inspire creative women to use their collective power for good. I believe that women possess a unique ability to drive change. I believe that we're wired to care about the world around us and we have immense influence. The question is then, how do we use that power and influence to change the wrongs we see in the world.
While we aren't affiliated with any political party or religious ideology, we do have some rules:
Invite conversations, embrace diversity, ask questions, love our neighbor, seek to grow, serve others.
Marginalize others, support hateful rhetoric, condone violence.
I hope you'll find resources and inspiration in this space. I hope you'll find yourself coming back again and again. I hope you'll see yourself as a Chick Who Gives a Hoot.
Here are the ladies that make up the Chicks Who Give a Hoot Team. If you're interested in becoming a contributor, please visit our contributors page.
