Give Public Comment & Show Up for Girls* in Santa Clara County
September 22, 2020 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm
Join us for a critical opportunity to show up for girls* by giving public comment and support our recommendations for Santa Clara County to provide access to period products for girls and gender-expansive youth, childcare resources, and stigma-free support for young mothers.
Over the last few months, Alliance for Girls has been working with our members, including the Young Women’s Freedom Center, Planned Parenthood Mar Monte, and the Santa Clara County Office of Women’s Policy, to advocate for resources and policies that meet the urgent needs of girls and gender-expansive youth most impacted by COVID-19.
This is a major step towards ensuring the needs of girls and gender-expansive youth are met. We need your help to make sure these referrals move forward. Please attend virtually and give a 1-minute public comment in support of this resolution. We need a strong youth and community presence to show that girls matter to our community!
What you can do:
- Send a support letter (template here) to the Board of Supervisors (firstname.lastname@example.org) by 2pm Monday, September 21.
- Attend the virtual Board Meeting (Zoom link) on Tuesday, September 22, around 1:30-3pm to provide public comment (1 minute max). Agenda here (our referrals are agenda items 19 & 21) and info about how to give public comment, with sample comments, here.
If you have any questions, please contact Haleema at email@example.com.
*“Girls” refers to gender-expansive youth (cis girls, trans girls, non-binary youth, gender non-conforming youth, gender queer youth and any girl-identified youth).
