In January 2014, the California GOP made a calculated decision to target trans students in a ballot measure to overturn new protections for California’s transgender students.
The California Referendum on AB 1266, Transgender Student Participation Based on Gender Identity (2014) did not make it to the ballot but that didn’t stop the GOP from scapegoating trans people to win votes in the 2016 election.
The RNC made a strategic decision to start a new culture war over the rights
and humanity of an estimated 700,000 transgender Americans.
The result is Trump’s ban on trans people in the military.
This cynical intrusion of the lives of innocent Americans is already
But to start by using the children of California is repugnant.
If you agree with me, please call your GOP reps and tell them to stop toying
with the lives of innocent people.
Tell them you want policies, not scapegoats!
