Thank our Senators for listening to their constituents

Did you know we host rallies every other Tuesday outside of the Henry Jackson Federal Building in downtown Seattle? After our rallies, we head inside to speak to staffers from the offices of Senator Murray and Senator Cantwell, where they keep us up to date on what's happening in the other Washington, and we let them know what's on our minds.

At our last rally/staffer meeting on June 11, we specifically asked our Senators to vote to block Donald Trump's sale of weapons to Saudi Arabia, and our Senators listened to us!

Resist Trump Tuesday Rally

June 25, 2019

11:45 AM – 1:30 PM

Come join us this Tuesday as we rally in support of our LGBTQIA+ friends and neighbors who are under attack by the Trump administration. Hate crimes have spiked since Trump was elected—with trans womxn of color being the #1 target. Patriotic transgender soldiers are fighting just to be “allowed” to continue to put their lives on the line for the rest of us. And this administration is seeking to legally define “gender” so as to erase transgender folx all together, along with their access to health, education, legal protection against discrimination and social services.

As PRIDE month comes to a close, learn why there’s a dedicated Trans Pride rally and march on 6/28 and why we all need to stand up to the hatred being spewed from Washington D.C., as well as the threats transgender and other LGBTQIA+ folx feel right here in Seattle.
