Radical Brownies

Direc­tor: Lin­da Gold­stein Knowlton

An alter­na­tive to Scout­ing for girls of col­or in Oak­land, Cal­i­for­nia, mem­bers earn badges not for sewing or sell­ing cook­ies, but for com­plet­ing chal­lenges relat­ing to social jus­tice – such as Black Lives Mat­ter, the LGBTQ move­ment, and the environment.

Start­ed by par­ents to expose their daugh­ters to the issues fac­ing peo­ple of col­or, this pro­gram for girls ages 8–12 builds pride and teach­es respect for oth­ers while hav­ing fun.

Released in 2017
