LIPSTICK gives women and girls the education, peer support and confidence to say no! We refuse to be used to take a life.
Operation LIPSTICK—and our girls’ program LIPGLOSS—use peer-to-peer education and leadership development models to inform women and girls about the dangers of buying, hiding and holding guns illegally, showcase positive role models, and change high-risk behaviors.
LIPSTICK is women helping women keep guns out of the wrong hands and make their neighborhoods safer today.
