[SDCPJ] Phonebank to Support Transgender Youth!

Wednesday, February 19th ~ 5:30-7:30pm
Planned Parenthood: First Avenue Specialty Services Michelle Wagner Center
2017 First Avenue Suite 100, San Diego, California 92101
Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/events/552720844835072/

Join our volunteer activist network as we educate California voters about the School Success & Opportunity Act (AB 1266), the first bill in the country to guarantee trans* students equal access to public school bathrooms, locker rooms, sports teams and all other sex-segregated facilities and activities that match their gender identity!

Since the fall of 2013, transphobic organizations like the Pacific Justice Institute and the National Organization for Marriage have been running a media smear campaign against trans* youth and lying to the public to get this issue on the ballot and remove these protections so long denied to trans* folk.

***THIS IS THE LAST PHONEBANK BEFORE THE FEBRUARY 24th DAY OF DECISION. WE WILL FIND OUT IF THIS ISSUE WILL BE ON THE NOVEMBER BALLOT ON FEB 24th***
Day of Decision: https://www.facebook.com/events/1462625570618746/

In preparation for a possible vote in November, we are hosting these phone banks to help reach the public before the onslaught of expected anti-trans* media hits the airwaves and our TV screens. We know with our experience working on the FAIR Education Act that it is imperative to reach the public before any doubts are put into their heads. Right now, we are still at a place where many people do not know about this bill or this issue. We cannot wait until the fall to reach voters if we want to win! In order to reach as many people as possible, we need your help!!

This event will include:
- gender 101 training & phonebank training
- a debrief on our experiences
- free snacks & drinks
- working with other volunteers to protect trans* youth!
