CT Rally to Support Trans Youth

To go to the Facebook Event Invite, click here.

It's time to RISE UP and JOIN IN SOLIDARITY to protect trans youth in our state! Let's FIGHT BACK with this youth-led effort to #ProtectTransYouth and #ClaimOurRights! Bring your signs, support, and energy to this rally that will be held directly in front of the center and west doors of the CT Supreme Court on Saturday, April 1, 2:30-4pm.

Our state's and nation's trans, gender non-conforming, and queer youth are under attack. In this time of fear, anxiety, and uncertainty about our most basic civil rights, we must continue to ensure that transgender, gender non-conforming, and queer youth are affirmed, respected, and loved regardless of their gender identity or expression.

In response to the U.S. Department of Education's and U.S. Department of Justice's withdrawal of the previous administration's trans guidance and the Supreme Court's refusal to hear Gavin Grimm's landmark anti-discrimination case, Connecticut is committed to making sure that all trans, gender non-conforming, and queer students feel safe in schools and public spaces.

Join our coalition of organizations in Connecticut dedicated to ensuring that all trans, gender non-conforming, and queer youth have access to safe, inclusive, and equitable spaces to learn, laugh, and love. Our coalition currently includes:

ACLU-CT
CT TransAdvocacy Coalition
GLSEN Connecticut
New Haven Pride Center
OutCT
PFLAG Hampton
PFLAG Hartford
Planned Parenthood of Southern New England
Triangle Community Center
True Colors, Inc.
