Girls for Gender Equity (GGE) is an intergenerational advocacy organization that works through a Black feminist lens, to achieve gender and racial justice by centering the leadership of Black girls and gender-expansive young people of color to reshape culture and policy through advocacy, youth-centered programming, and shifting dominant narratives. 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 GNCNB youth of color. We ultimately believe in and work toward a world where cis and trans girls of color and gender non-conforming/non-binary youth of color are free.
