The Girl Scout Movement- led by girls- is advocating to change the name of the bridge in Savannah to the Juliette Gordon Low Bridge. As one of Savannah's most influential women, Girl Scouts believes that Juliette Gordon Low deserves this honor for her amazing story and impact on the lives of Girl Scouts’ 2.6 million members and 59 million alumnae.
Girl Scout girl members, volunteers, parents, and leaders from Girl Scout councils across the country came together at our national convention this year in Columbus, Ohio, and decided to take up the effort to honor this remarkable Savannah native and original G.I.R.L. (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, and Leader).
As the founder of Girl Scouts, Juliette Gordon Low has made an extraordinary impact on the lives of millions of girls across our country through Girl Scouts for over a century. Beginning with an inaugural gathering of just 18 girls in Savannah on March 12, 1912, Juliette broke the conventions of the time—reaching across class, cultural, and ethnic boundaries to ensure all girls, including those with disabilities, had a place to grow and develop their talents and leadership skills.
Georgia Residents: We are asking the Georgia General Assembly to name the Savannah bridge after Juliette Gordon Low, a woman who made—and through her legacy continues to make—an extraordinary impact on the lives of millions of girls in Georgia and across our country.
