Beast Grrl Collective is a youth-run feminist organization interested in promoting youth empowerment, feminist education, and art activism. We publish a zine, organize service projects, and host events around Baltimore City.  

 

History

Beast Grrl Collective was founded in the summer of 2014, when the first issue of Beast Grrl Zine was published.  Since then we have created ten issues of Beast Grrl Zine, organized zine-making workshops and other events around Baltimore City, and worked with groups like FORCE, Balti-Gurls, and Red Emma's Bookstore. We are funded by Youth as Resources and The Research Associate's Foundation.  To stay updated with our current projects, check out the current and past issues of our newsletter here

Our editors

  Elizabeth Sacktor is a junior actor at Baltimore School For The Arts. She loves reading, talking, history, doodling, watering her plants (and herself because hydration is important,) spending time outside and changing people’s minds. She is so excited to begin another year of working with Beast Grrl because it makes her feel proud of herself and her friends, (also it’s lots of fun.) Being a part of something as special as Beast Grrl reminds Elizabeth that she has a voice and the ability to share others’ voices. Elizabeth spends her time (when she’s not doing school-stuffs and the weather is nice) outside as she also works as an outdoor educator in the summertime.  If you want to get in touch with her (which she would love because something else she loves is making new friends) you can follow her on Instagram @fizzinglizbies where you’re welcome to talk activism, intersectionality, history or just personal experiences.
