Calling All Movement Siblings

Dear Movement Siblings,

Thanks for all you do. Looking forward to Friday!
Here's info for immediate release/Please share with your networks:

CALL TO ACTION!! CALLING ALL MOVEMENT SIBLINGS!!!




In face of Black History Month and all the ongoing pervasive violence targeting transgender women and queer youth of color, Trans and Queer youth of color are letting adults know that they are here to express, resist, and organize.

 

In an urgent youth-led demand for peace and acceptance, we call for safety, dignity and justice for all our trans and queer communities of color. Since the start of 2015, there have been more than seven known assassinations of our trans sisters’ nation-wide, including the murder of queer brown teenager Jessie Hernandez, who was only 17 years old when murdered by Denver police.

 

Our Trans and Queer youth leaders of color of the Gay- Straight Alliance Network and Youth Justice Coalition from the Southern California area will travel to the Los Angeles City Hall steps to elevate our voices for safety, dignity, and justice of our communities.

 

Please join us this Friday, February 20th on GSA Day for Racial Justice from 5-7pm, starting exactly at 5:00pm in front of the Los Angeles City Hall where Black, Trans, Queer, Latino, and Asian & Pacific Islander immigrant youth will unite and you matter in this movement! We ask that you walk alongside your movement siblings.  After our unity action, we will gather to watch a free movie screening of Paris is Burning. Please be part of this historic action. See you at 5:00 p.m.

‪Please share the flyer and invite family and friends with the hashtags
