This meeting was designed to catalyze action across the country in support of girls in, or at risk of being involved in, girl on girl violence. In particular, we focused on building the capacity of existing girl alliances/coalitions, and supporting the development of new ones. Additional topics included the new role and priorities of B2FG, working together to craft a toolkit to support those who work with girls, and shaping new opportunities and resources.
B2F Girls Roundtable: Stop Girl on Girl Violence (Phase I) brought together representatives from existing girl alliances, experts from the field, policymakers, educators and agents with the juvenile justice system. This Roundtable was open to the public.

A Move to End Girl on Girl Violence
When? Friday, June 17, 2016. 10 AM - 2 PM EST.
Where? Floyd Room at 200 Piedmont Avenue, Atlanta, GA 30334 (Located on the 20th floor of the west tower in the Sloppy Floyd Building just across from Georgia's State Capitol building).
B2F Girls founder, Shekina Farr Moore, moderated a Roundtable discussion on
empowering girls to be leaders who are equipped to handle conflict in a non-violent manner.
Why a Roundtable? The roundtable environment allows for input from many experts with varying perspectives and produces new thinking that challenges existing best practices. Everyone in attendance will get some level of consultation as they learn from both the moderators and the participants.
The purpose of the B2F Roundtable is to receive unexpected valuable information. You will likely hear about problems that you haven’t faced yet, but will in the future. Although you may not be aware of an issue yet, hearing solutions from other professionals will help you plan accordingly. Key qualities of the Roundtable will include an informal discussion, an emphasis on discussion and an active audience role.
