Family & Friends,
Please join us at the Headquarters of Canvass For A Cause (2139 1st Ave, Unit 100, San Diego, CA) for this special discussion.
The U.S. prison industrial complex is an extremely brutal and oppressive system of injustice. As community members & allies, we must respond to the systemic violence against LGBTQ people and respond through advocacy, education, direct service, and organizing.
Join Black & Pink San Diego, Canvass for a Cause, & SAME Alliance for two events in one fierce afternoon!
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. Over the past 90 days, they have been running a media smear campaign against trans* youth and lying to the public to get this issue on the ballot. We Meet AT 6:30pm under the Hillcrest Pride Flag! ( University Ave and Normal St, San Diego, CA )
California officials have until Nov. 20th to count & validate signatures. WHETHER THEY QUALIFY THE REFERENDUM OR NOT, WE WILL RALLY IN HILLCREST TO SUPPORT OUR YOUTH!
