WHY WE RALLY
Transgender students moved one step closer to justice with the passing of the School Success and Opportunity Act (AB 1266) this year. This brand new California bill guarantees transgender students safe access to necessary school facilities & activities in public schools. As you may know, this bill and these students are under attack by national transphobic organizations. Since the fall of 2013, they have been running a media smear campaign against trans* youth and lying to the public to get this issue on the ballot.
California officials have until Jan. 8th to complete a random verification sample of the signatures. Depending on the validity rate, they may either a) qualify the referendum b) fail to qualify the referendum or c) trigger a complete verification process which would take until March to complete. WHETHER THEY QUALIFY THE REFERENDUM OR NOT, WE WILL RALLY IN HILLCREST TO SUPPORT OUR YOUTH!
