Eliot L Engel said : “The debate currently raging over reopening schools this Fall highlights just how little we know about the long-term impacts of COVID-19, particularly on children. The health and safety of families across the country should be our top concern and science should be driving our decision-making, not politics,” “As we invest more in coronavirus research, it is critical that we assess the impact of this pandemic on children so that we can provide parents with the appropriate resources and tools to combat this virus. We need our National Institutes of Health to expand research on the effects of COVID-19 on children in order to make sound public health decisions” External link

This year, one-in-four students will be physically harassed because of their gender expression. More than one-in-eight will be physically assaulted because of their sexual orientation, gender expression, or gender. Sixty percent of LGBTQ students feel unsafe in their own classrooms, and over one-third will have missed a day of school because of threats, harassment, or violence. We need to say enough is enough, yet it is clear the Trump Administration is doing nothing to help those in the LGBTQ community.

Eliot L Engel said : “The debate currently raging over reopening schools this Fall highlights just how little we know about the long-term impacts of COVID-19, particularly on children. The health and safety of families across the country should be our top concern and science should be driving our decision-making, not politics,” “As we invest more in coronavirus research, it is critical that we assess the impact of this pandemic on children so that we can provide parents with the appropriate resources and tools to combat this virus. We need our National Institutes of Health to expand research on the effects of COVID-19 on children in order to make sound public health decisions” External link

This year, one-in-four students will be physically harassed because of their gender expression. More than one-in-eight will be physically assaulted because of their sexual orientation, gender expression, or gender. Sixty percent of LGBTQ students feel unsafe in their own classrooms, and over one-third will have missed a day of school because of threats, harassment, or violence. We need to say enough is enough, yet it is clear the Trump Administration is doing nothing to help those in the LGBTQ community. I am always proud to author this resolution and will continue to stand with our LGBTQ students” External link
