Stand up against transphobia at tonight’s Time For Change Rally.

In the summer of 2016, the BC Human Rights Code was finally amended to prohibit discrimination against gender identity and gender expression.

A few months later, the provincial government directed all school districts to implement sexual orientation and gender identity (the SOGI 123 program) into their existing anti-bullying curriculum.

That’s when Chilliwack School Board trustee Barry Neufeld started his vocal opposition to SOGI 123, likening transgender acceptance to “child abuse” and calling transgender people “biologically absurd.” (If you want a deep rage-dive into how his brain works, check out his statements here.)

Mr. Neufeld has been ramping up the rhetoric in the new year, organizing an email campaign against the city’s pro-SOGI 123 Parental Advisory Committee President… because that’s what Jesus would do?

What you can do is attend tonight’s Time For Change Rally in support of inclusive school programs and the safety of all children. Because everyone deserves to feel safe in school.

TIME FOR CHANGE RALLY
Tonight at 6pm
8430 Cessna Drive, Chilliwack
