Girls for Gender Equity (GGE) demands: - Cover the digital and educational divide, young people are being asked to show up fully for remote learning, while many do not have access to reliable internet, laptops, or even quiet spaces in their homes to work. -Young people don't always feel safe at home, young people don't have the autonomy and resources that adults have, and they are being cut off from their primary source of support and community -- their peers, isolation is hard on their mental health.-Policing presents an increase harm/risk for young people: NYC Mayor has already said that he's basically afraid of young people being out of school, this paints young people unfairly and opens the door for police to unfairly target young people. Police should not harass or arrest young people for not adhering to social distancing.-Young people are incarcerated in dangerous facilities, where COVID-19 can spread quickly, and they do not have access to quality healthcare or support, they should be released.
