    Why is AOC so vital?

    A message from our founder, Patrice Harrison

    Young women today face more pressures and challenges than ever. Recent studies about "young Black Women" reveals concerning data:

    • More than 20% of young black girls are Obese and have little access to information on healthy food choices or education on making healthy choices.

    • 56% of girls as young as 13 have been sexually harassed and Black Young women have the highest cases of sexual abuse and assault those goes unreported.

    • African American women and Latinas account for 80% of reported female HIV/AIDS diagnoses, even though they represent only 25% of the U.S. female population

    • Young Black Women want to be debt free or learn to manage money, but dont know where to start.

    • Young black women are 20% more likely to experience serious mental health problems than the general population, and don’t get the help needed due to fear.

    • Finally Young black women say that the top three biggest barriers to taking on

    • leadership roles and changing their communities are being laughed at, speaking in front

    • of others, and shyness.

     

    Each of these figures are troubling on their own, but is it even more concerning to know that 75% of young women who struggle with low self-esteem in this manner engage in harmful behaviors like drugs, drinking, bullying, disordered eating and have suicidal thoughts. Thankfully, we know what can make the difference.
