Everything That Happened At The 2018 Gurls Talk Festival In NYC By Founder Adwoa Aboah.

Straight from the Gurls Talk Instagram (you should definitely follow btw) are highlights from this year’s Gurls Talk Festival in New York City including key note speakers and topics of discussion. It was an incredible event.

Most important topic: Voting

Girls Talk brought in @hello_voter to help teens and first time voters be smarter and more engaged in the process. Hello Voter offered education and training on who their elected officials are, what they stand for and getting registered to vote.
