Girls for Gender Equity (GGE) is an intergenerational advocacy organization committed to the physical, psychological, social, and economic development of girls and women. Through youth organizing, leadership development, and community-building for gender and racial equity, GGE challenges structural forces -- racism, sexism, transphobia, homophobia, economic inequality -- that work to constrict the freedom, full expression, and rights of trans and cis girls and young women of color, and gender non-conforming youth of color.
In 2002, GGE established a dual approach to community-based advocacy and direct service that develops youth leadership and strengthens resources within the communities we serve through our three core programs –Sisters in Strength Youth Organizing program, Urban Leaders Academy middle school program, the Young Women’s Advisory Council. Within our approach, GGE targets New York City public schools based in communities of color as sites to mobilize and collectively work toward gender, race and class equity. GGE also works within a participatory governance process to center the needs of cis, trans and gender nonconforming young women of color locally and nationally.
