Show Up – Freedom of the Press and Transgender Rights Rally

#RESIST TRUMP TUESDAYS

PROTECT THE PRESS! SUPPORT OUR STUDENTS!

Join us this Tuesday, March 7, 2017 as we gather to show our love. The rally HAS BEEN MOVED INDOORS DUE TO WEATHER and will now take place at First Unitarian Church at the corner of Fourth and York Streets 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.
