When you think of participatory democracy, what do you think of? Do you think of cisgender and transgender girls and gender non-conforming youth of color working to transform institutional power, shift the largest school district in the nation, or dismantle structural inequities? WE DO! GGE is an intergenerational advocacy organization committed to the physical, psychological, social, and economic development of cisgender and transgender girls and gender non-conforming youth of color.

In this workshop participants will learn and interact with GGE’s vision and principles for actualizing gender and racial equity in New York City. Join us to explore and practice different methods and tools such as consciousness building youth-led policy and organizing strategies to co-create a more democratic, inclusive, and open city with and for young people.
