Our Family Coalition Supports Transgender Youth with Readings

I am Jazz

In just a few weeks, parents, caregivers, educators, community leaders, ministers and students across the country will join to support transgender children and youth by hosting readings in their communities of the children’s book I Am Jazz.
Already, more than 85 people have signed up. Today, you can help us break 100!
HRC Foundation’s Welcoming Schools program is joining with the National Education Association (NEA) and the National Coalition Against Censorship (NCAC) to hold these readings on April 28, 2016, and we need your help. But don’t worry, we’ll help you every step of the way with promoting your event, planning your event and discussion and providing attendees with information and resources. We even have a new I Am Jazz lesson plan for educators!
Sign up today to help us reach even more young people with this amazing story.
With all the challenges that transgender youth face, and all the negative messages they hear from lawmakers and anti-LGBT groups, let’s send them as many messages of love, affirmation and support as we possibly can!
Here’s what we need from you:

Spread the word by sharing this information with your friends on social media.
Consider hosting a reading yourself –– in your school, at a local library, in your church or in a community center. Sign up here.

We’re counting on you to be a part of this amazing day of action to support transgender youth!
