March 30, 2023 Women In Struggle – Mujeres En Lucha
Proposal to the movement from Women in Struggle – Mujeres en Lucha:
NATIONAL MARCH TO PROTECT TRANS YOUTH
Florida, Autumn 2023
& SPEAKOUT FOR TRANS RIGHTS
Build a People’s Tribunal to put anti-trans bigots on trial
Transgender, nonbinary, gender-nonconforming, and intersex people are under siege. So far this year, more than 400 anti-trans bills have been introduced at the state and national levels. Fourteen states have banned or severely restricted life-saving gender-affirming care for trans youth. Attacks, both legislative and violent, are growing by the day, while national elected officials who claim to support LGBTQ+ community remain silent and do nothing.
We can’t wait for the next election in hopes that things might improve. Measures are being enacted NOW that will do irreparable harm to trans youth and all trans people. The thousands of youth around the country walking out of schools and rallying at state capitols have shown us the way. Now we need to take the movement national.
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, who wants to be president, is one of the most vicious abusers of trans youth and the rights of all people. Behind politicians like DeSantis are rich bosses who profit from divide-and-rule tactics.
Join us to build a broad national coalition in partnership with organizations and communities on the ground in Florida and with allies in the Black Lives and immigrant rights struggles, the women’s movement, educators, labor, the unemployed, and antiwar movements.
GET READY for the first planning meeting on Zoom in April.
