Letter Writing Campaign (#ProtectOurGirls)

In the last 72 hrs, there has been a collective outrage all across Barbados about the alleged mistreatment and abuse of minors at the Government Industrial School.

A campaign began on Twitter under the hashtag #ProtectOurGirls to bring awareness to the situation and demand immediate intervention from the Minister of Home Affair, Information & Public Affairs.

Under the hashtag, there have been calls for justice and protection of the girls at the facility citing an article detailing the abuse of a 14-year-old girl at the facility.

Reform of the Government Industrial School has been long overdue, join us in demanding that this never happens to another child ever again.
