Get ready! Girl Model will broadcast this Sunday, 3/24 at 10pm on POV. Check your local PBS listings here. Join us on screen or online and help us make a difference!
Working with our partners, super models Sara Ziff, Carre Otis, and Rachel Blais of the Model Alliance, and the Fordham Fashion Law Institute we’ve created a petition to ask that child models be afforded the same rights and protections as all other child performers.
We want to close this dangerous loop hole in New York State and make sure that the child models who are working in NY State are working in regulated, safe and non-hazardous environments. We urge you to sign the petition and help us spread the word.
Here are a few ways you can help:
