An Open Letter

To: Rep. Kelly, Sen. Durbin, Sen. Duckworth

From: A constituent in Calumet City, IL

Gender-based violence, which disproportionately impacts women and girls, is a pervasive human rights violation that demands comprehensive action. Schools play a crucial role in shaping attitudes and behaviors from an early age. Requiring age-appropriate education on preventing gender-based violence, starting in preschool and continuing throughout the educational journey, can foster a culture of respect, equality, and non-violence. This proactive approach has the potential to transform societal norms, empower individuals to recognize and reject harmful patterns, and ultimately create a future where women and girls can live free from the threat of violence. By addressing this issue through education, we can cultivate a generation committed to promoting gender equality and ensuring the safety and dignity of all individuals.
