On June 24, 2022, the U.S. Supreme Court issued its ruling in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health
Organization, overturning Roe v. Wade and revoking the constitutional right to abortion. Although reproductive health access for many low-income, rural, and systems-involved girls has long been
difficult, the Dobbs decision paved the way for states to outlaw abortion entirely, which is likely just the
beginning of attempts to further restrict access to more comprehensive reproductive health services.

A year ago, group of scholars, teachers and other stakeholders from across the ideological spectrum released the Educating for American Democracy Roadmap, presenting a broad vision for the integration of history and civics education throughout grades K–12.

On October 27, GTY launched a 3-part web seminar series exploring the mental health and well-being of young people amid the pandemic and an ever-growing set of stressors.

We also brought policy advocates, mental health professionals, educators, researchers, practitioners, and funders into the conversation.
