By now, all of us are probably being affected in one way or another by the COVID-19/coronavirus pandemic. Schools and other places are closed; many of us are staying at home/social distancing from others; and so on. From the government to our own homes, we're all trying to figure out the best and safest way to respond to this situation.
A group in the Bay Area in California is working on an op-ed newspaper article talking about the importance of making sure that—among all the many things to be thought about at this time—girls' and kids' needs are met and prioritized.
- How is COVID-19 impacting you and your family?
- What are your thoughts, concerns, and feelings (good, bad, and/or a mix) right now?
- What do you want and need from adults at this time?
Tell us about what you are experiencing, and how people can help. We're looking for a few short responses to quote in the article. (Note: The authors are hoping to submit their piece to a newspaper by the end of today—so, ideally, please reply as soon as possible.)
Thanks, and to all of you: be well! <3
