The School Girls Deserve

girls for gender equityThis report from Girls for Gender Equity is the result of a participatory action research project that was done in collaboration with girls, transgender, and gender-nonconforming (TGNC) youth of color in all five boroughs of New York City. Listening sessions were held with more than 100 participants ages 9–24 from various racial and ethnic backgrounds. The report documents how girls and TGNC youth of color are pushed out of schools, and uplifts their visions for the schools that they want and deserve as well as lists policy and practice recommendations that school stakeholders can partake in to create schools that are holistic, safe, and affirming for girls and TGNC youth of color.
