In Solidarity

In solidarity conversations. Centering the voices of cis and T G N C young women and young folx of color in the C O V I D 19 pandemic response.

These are confusing and complicated times for everyone with COVID-19, the resulting economic crisis, and the recent protests and uprisings in reaction to the murders of Breonna Taylor, Nina Pop, Tony McDade, and George Floyd and ongoing racism in the United States. While all of this has caused a tremendous shift and uncertainty for our nation as a whole, these crises uniquely and disproportionately impact communities of color, their families, and their communities across the country.

National Crittenton (Crittenton) and National Young Women’s Initiatives (National YWI) are working with young leaders across the country to center the voices of young women of color and TGNC young people of color in short-term and long-terms responses to the COVID-19 crisis and the murders of Black people by law enforcement and white supremacists.

Thank you to every who shared your experiences and expertise to help ensure that local, state, and national responses are informed and grounded in the solutions and recommendations of those most impacted.
