#ResistTrumpTuesdays: Press Freedom & Trans Rights [UPDATED]

#Resist Trump Tuesdays -Protect The Press! Support Our Students!

Join us this Tuesday, February 28, 2017 as we gather outside Senator Mitch McConnell’s office to show our love. The rally will take place in front of 601 West Broadway in Louisville during lunch on Tuesday beginning at 11:30 AM.

This week we’re speaking out about press freedom and transgender student rights.

Over the last week the Trump administration encroached on press freedom through both the exclusion of several media outlets from official White House press events to accusations as well as attacking the very legitimacy of the institution on Twitter and in speeches.

Simultaneously last week, the Trump administration rolled back Obama administration guidelines offering structure and guidance on Title IX protections for transgender students.

To send a message to both the Trump administration as well as Senator Mitch McConnell, we’ll be holding signs, leading chants and listening to speakers elaborate on the importance of an independent press and protections for some of our most vulnerable young citizens beginning at 11:30 AM this Tuesday.

Stay up to date with discussion about this Tuesday’s event on Facebook.

[UPDATE]

The event for Tuesday, February 28, 2017 has been postponed until next Tuesday due to inclement weather. Keep an eye on our social media and website for additional information!
