Girls Are Talking About It In Zoey's Room
In view of the recent tragedies, many girls want to connect with each other on topics suddenly very important to them. Zoey's Room is providing a place for girls to discuss their concerns by posting a message board on their website where girls can write about how they're feeling in all this chaos. Don't keep it inside, post it on-line at

The message board is being monitored and responded to by Erin Brockette and Vanitha Nair, Zoey's Room creators.

Vini says, "We at ZR Central are very troubled by the recent tragedies here in the United States. Our hearts go out to the many families who lost loved ones in the violent acts. I am an Indian that grew up in Canada and the US. Though I love India and its rich culture, America is the only home I know. Its diversity is what makes this country so unique. I am saddened that other Americans of Middle-Eastern and South Asian descent are now being targeted.

"The aftermath of these events has an effect on all of us. The purpose of our site is to help address concerns that girls are facing. Are you angry, scared, confused or do you feel you are not affected? Do you have a Middle-Eastern friend that you feel may be subjected to prejudice? Do you want to do something but don't know what to do or where to go? Please share any thoughts you have on this topic on Zoey's message board."
