Rally for Trans Kids brings together a coalition of supporters to show transgender, non-binary, and LGBTQ+ kids that the Hastings community has their back.
The rally is in direct response to the recent news reported on the front page of CNN that local School Board Chair Kelsey Waits was bullied and harassed throughout her recent bid for re-election. These attacks went well beyond the typical criticism and scrutiny that elected officials often face. Kelsey’s youngest child, a second-grader, was outed as transgender by a local group of parents who had activated around the election.
We will not be divided by attacks against anyone’s family or anyone’s kids.
We reject division, hate, and fear-mongering and are here to show that Hastings embraces kindness, respect, and civil discourse.
Expected attendees and supporters include Hastings Progressives; RECLAIM; ACLU of Minnesota; Afton Indivisible; St. Croix Valley Indivisible; Indivisible St. Paul; MN Indivisible Alliance; Hastings THRIVE; Hastings High School Feminism Club; IDEA: Inclusion, Diversity & Equality Alliance; Transforming Families; Hastings civic, business, non-profit, and faith leaders; and more.
