Our voices united bear powerful witness and results! Huge victory!
From Debi Jackson:
"Thank you to all of the parents who signed onto our letter to Jeff Mateer regarding his statements about trans kids! That letter and coverage around it and others asking about his statement has lead to (R) Senator Grassley putting on the pressure in the Judiciary Committee to ensure his nomination was rejected.

There is power in parents and allies standing up to expose discriminatory speec...h and actions and demand accountability. This is big win!

Bringing Up Gender Renegades is with Jamie Lee.

Go buy to this book. Seriously. It's gold. It's about a baby fox that fell out of his den and into a turtle hole and landed in a shell and was raised as a turtl...e. He never felt like a turtle because he wasn't a turtle but his family loved him & encouraged him to be a turtle- they didn't care that he looks different. But one day he realizes that he needs to break out of his shell and be who he really is. He's embraced by his friends and family and he is so much happier. It was written by a guy that grew up in my community and life was really hard for him as a kid. I don't know whether or not the author is personally trans but he wrote it for kids like mine and put the website for the Trevor Project at the end.

This is a new group (affiliated with the NCTE) that will do more lobbying and will publish info regarding political candidates. Donations are not tax deductible, but there is an $80K match, so your money will go extra far to advocate for equal rights for transgender people. The $80K match also applies to donations to the NCTE, which ARE tax deductible. Either way, they fund a good cause.

Donate today to help fight for trans equality and make our collective voice even louder. Your support will help your Action Fund show politicians that trans rights matter and trans people vote.
