WHY WE RALLY

Transgender students moved one step closer to justice with the passing of the School Success and Opportunity Act (AB 1266) in 2013. AB1266 guarantees transgender students safe access to necessary school facilities & activities in public schools. For the second time this bill and these students are under attack by national transphobic organizations. Right now they are running a media smear campaign against trans* youth and lying to the public to get this issue on the ballot.
