7:00-8:30pm, The Q Center – For 11 years, Washington’s non-discrimination laws have ensured fair and equal treatment for our transgender family, neighbors and friends. But now, a new initiative—I-1552—has been filed that threatens to repeal critical protections for transgender Washingtonians. Initiative 1552 would put our state’s long-standing non-discrimination laws on the 2017 ballot—and risks making discrimination the law of the land in Washington.
Want to take action in Kitsap to protect our non-discrimination laws? Join us for a community advocacy training to learn what you can do in Kitsap County!
At this training we will:
- Discuss I-1552 and learn about Washington Won’t Discriminate’s statewide efforts
- Share some basic information about trans identities and current state law
- Hear from our local SAFE Alliance–the education and outreach group working in Kitsap to protect our non-discrimination laws
- Learn advocacy strategies that ALL people can do in order to be a part of this effort
Light refreshments and materials provided.
