Bulletin – Join us to resist anti-2SLGBTQI+ hate!

On Wednesday, September 20th right-wing groups across the country are organizing protests to spread disinformation about 2SLGBTQI+ people and resist trans-inclusive policies in schools.

There will be counter protests in many cities across our region. The hateful protest is called #1MillionMarch4Children. Over 80 locations have been announced as participating. You can find a list of events on the right-wing website, Blueprint for Canada.

The K-12 Presidents Council urges you to take action:

  • Show up! The BC Labour Against Transphobia Flying Squads list has set up a sign-up form for counter-protesters to connect with each other – _there is safety in numbers so please join if you can and share through your trusted networks (not social media): https://forms.gle/9h6mAcK62YLQjeh96
  • Issue a statement condemning this hate in our communities
  • CUPE has supported campaigns and events by Momentum, the Canadian Centre for Gender and Sexual Diversity, and the Enchante Network. You can add your voice to Momentum’s federal campaign to #Act4QueerSafety here
  • Try to get Poilievre to reject the Conservative’s anti-trans policies here.
  • You can contact your municipal representative through CCGSD to pass 2SLGBTQI+ inclusive policies here.
