The Girl Scout Movement was founded to help all girls reach their full potential and to create a safe place for girls to foster their individual growth, character, self-sufficiency, and leadership. Girl Scouts–Arizona Cactus-Pine Council (GSACPC) values these founding principles and is committed to upholding them. GSACPC will not deny membership into the organization because of race, color, ethnicity, religious or spiritual beliefs, age, national origin, socioeconomic status, documentation status, disability, gender identity, or sexual orientation. GSACPC stands in alignment with Girl Scouts of the USA as an anti-racist organization, and we are committed to diversity, equity, inclusion, and racial justice as they are fundamental to achieving our mission. We believe every girl should have an opportunity to thrive, and every individual should have an opportunity to contribute. Our organization strives to foster an inclusive and welcoming environment where diverse perspectives are valued, systemic barriers are dismantled, and racial equity is actively pursued. We reject all forms of discrimination, bias, and unfair treatment, particularly those rooted in systemic racism. Through education, awareness, advocacy, and accountable actions, we work towards creating a just and equitable society where girls of courage, confidence, and character can make the world a better place.
