Laura Voigt started this petition to Governor Andrew M. Cuomo

Since March 15, 2020, our children have been home with no classroom instruction, no social interaction, no physical activity, no sense of normalcy. The instances of children suffering from depression, anxiety, insecurity, and fear have continued to multiply. Children NEED stimulation and predictability, they need community. This has all been taken from them. In the recent days, the unrest in our communities and the brokenness of our society has created even more chaos and uncertainty for our youth, the long term effects of which we will not know for years to come. 

We are pleading with the Governor to lift the ban on youth sports and give our children the chance to begin healing. This can be done with protocols in place to keep our children safe, while still allowing them to return to the structure, encouragement, and familiarity of their teammates and coaches. This cannot wait another month. New York residents know that our days of warm weather and sunshine are limited. If professional sports are permitted to practice, why aren't our children? Please sign below and ask the Governor to make the mental and physical health of our children a priority.
