Rep. Kim visits NASA

Washington, DC—Today, U.S. Representative Young Kim (CA-39) joined Rep. Bonnie Watson Coleman (NJ-12) in announcing the introduction of a bipartisan resolution to celebrate the Gold Award Girl Scouts of 2021 and recognize the Girl Scouts of America for their 110 years of empowering young women.

“For 110 years, Girl Scouts of America has empowered girls and young women across the country to become our future generations of problem solvers and leaders,” said Rep. Kim. “I’m proud to join in celebrating their important work to create stronger communities. In Congress, I introduced the Innovations in Informal STEM Learning Act to support programs like Girl Scouts that expose students to STEM concepts outside of the classroom and will continue to work to expand opportunities for students to succeed and achieve their dream.”

“The impact the Girl Scouts have had on our country is hard to overstate,” said Rep. Watson Coleman, co-chair of Troop Capitol Hill. “For 110 years the Girl Scouts have fostered leadership skills and civic engagement. They’ve supported girls’ mental health and offered an accepting, safe space where girls can feel free to be themselves. They’ve also offered girls exceptional programming in STEM, the outdoors, and entrepreneurship.  It’s an honor to be able to officially recognize their enormous contributions to our country.”

Rep. Kim is committed to supporting young women and girls and expand access to STEM education. She has supported several House bills expanding STEM opportunities for students and early-career researchers, such as:

  • The Innovations in Informal STEM Learning Act (H.R. 3859);
  • The Supporting Early-Career Researchers Act (H.R. 144);
  • The MSI STEM Achievement Act (H.R. 2027);
  • The Rural STEM Education Research Act (H.R. 210) ; and,
  • The Research Excellence through STEM Inclusion Act (H.R. 3809).
