Trigger Warning: gender based violence, femicide, r**e, sexual assault, and Covid-19⁣

This month’s GAP will be a conversation surrounding the impact of COVID-19 on millions of girls’ access to education in low-income communities and the threats this has posed to girls’ safety. We will also look into the response to this emergency and the power and brilliance displayed by these girls. ⁣

Join us Wednesday 8 pm EST! You will find the zoom link in your inbox!
