“In the Radical Brownies, girls learn about social justice movements such the Black Panthers and the Chicano group Brown Berets. They wear their brown berets in homage to those two groups. But they also study how Disney princesses define girls’ image of beauty, and how that can affect self-image.

The Radical Brownies have their own badge system, including one for ‘Radical Beauty’ and an ‘LGBT ally’ badge. The girls also earned a ‘Black Lives Matter’ badge after learning about police accountability and attending a civil rights march in Oakland.”


The ‘Radical Brownies’ of Oakland have taken the Girl Scouts concept to an edgier level.
You gotta read, An Open Love Letter to Radical Brownies, by eshani__ywocic, it adds such power and love. A big YES to what she says,  “We believe that young people are not just the future, but the NOW. Your leadership has shown us and the world what “contributing radically” to our communities and celebrating our different cultures should look like.” Yes not only the future but the NOW. We celebrate the youth of this revolution who lead the way and as the song Ella’s song states:
“To me young people come first, they have the courage where we fail
And if I can but shed some light as they carry us through the galeThe older I get the better I know that the secret of my going on
Is when the reins are in the hands of the young, who dare to run against the storm
