If there is ever a time, where we need you to show up and have your voice speak out for our Trans youth, the time is now. Friends and Allies, especially clergy in Las Vegas who claim they are allies of Trans folks, it is time to step up and show if you are a true ally…
We need every voice to show up on these dates listed below and advocate for our Trans youth. The Trans community will be watching who shows up for us at these meetings. I am especially holding any clergy who waves the banner of being inclusive accountable. I will try and make all the meetings possible, unless I am called to be with my daughter. All clergy please wear your clergy shirt and collar, stole is optional!
There are a series of public input meetings coming up for the CCSD proposed policy for trans students. This policy would protect trans students across the board--so that they are safe and respected in all our schools and not just dependent on the building administrator.
On Monday 11/28/2017 there was a regulatory hearing regarding this policy. An entire church came out to speak against the policy. I was not present but, apparently, it was brutal. Those in opposition of this policy were hateful and said terrible, ill-informed, and absolutely untrue things. Some were even upset that kids who are trans got to be in the same building as them.
There are five public input meetings coming up and the opposition will be out in full force. I and some others, have made a commitment to there at all the meetings as much as possible. But this is not enough, we need every possible voice to speak up for this policy that would help protect and bring awareness to Trans individuals. The trans community could use the support on this. You are not required to do anything--just show up to support. If you are interested in speaking, comments are limited to 2 minutes and are signed up for on a first come, first serve basis. Kids lives are counting on us.
