Black Girl’s Reading List: Super Tuesday 2020

A National Agenda for Black Girls (NABG) is a project of Girls for Gender Equity and a manifestation of the vision set out by youth participants in the first National Young Women’s Advisory Council day-long convening. The goal of this project is to ensure that those who are vying to assume leadership and power in the United States are aware that they must be accountable to the people, including young people, living in this country. Black girls grow up to be Black women, who are the most reliable base for the Democratic party, and for far too long the issues that matter most to them have not been prioritized on a federal level.

NABG is led by a steering committee of young folks from across the country. Check out what our Steering Committee are reading and listening to in order to stay informed about the issues that the National Agenda for Black Girls is championing:

Education Justice & Opportunity

Black girls need the civil rights protections which allow us to thrive and succeed through public education, without the constraints of racism, sexism, ableism, homophobia, and transphobia.

Access to Democracy for Young People

Candidates Must Support Young People’s Full Engagement in the Democratic Process.

Healing, Well-Being & Reproductive Justice

Black girls need and deserve equitable access to health, family building, family planning, and well-being that centers girls, women, and non-binary people.

Ending Gender-Based Violence & Building Cultures of Consent

Presidential candidates must invest in tools that end gender based violence and offer supportive services for transgender, cisgender, and non-binary survivors in schools, communities, and public spaces.

Immigration & Racial Justice

Black girls deserve to be free from the fear of family separation through deportation and have full access to basic human rights including health care and education, regardless of immigration status.
