Girls for Gender Equity (GGE) is an intergenerational organization committed to the physical, psychological, social, and economic development of girls and women. Through education, organizing and physical fitness, GGE encourages communities to remove barriers and create opportunities for girls and women to live self-determined lives.

GGE achieves its mission through organizing in schools and in communities throughout New York City with programming such as the Urban Leadership Academy and Sisters in Strength, both utilizing evidence based youth development and social justice models.

GGE utilizes a two-pronged approach of community organizing and service provision, mobilizing 600 NYC boys and girls ages 8-19, as well as women and men under Title IX of the Education Amendment and its ten points, to work collectively toward systemic change. Resources are available on the website.

For many of us, the collective trauma of COVID-19 and racial injustice, including the white supremacist, anti-Black murders in Buffalo on May 14th, has greatly impacted our mental health and wellness. Our collective grief, pain, and anger can feel at times like too much to bear. But we know that just as all forms of violence are interconnected, so too must be our response to it. This issue of the PreventIPV newsletter highlights the role of community connection in promoting mental well-being. Resources feature strategies for trauma-informed community building, community care, and healing justice.
