To support students who are fighting for their civil rights, the CCEA Social Justice Caucus are asking folks to sign up to speak, show up to support, and speak out to media (television and newspaper).
Call (702) 799-1072 on Monday to put your name on list to speak. The agenda item for the gender diverse item is 5.04. Or you can sign up for public comment which is at the beginning of the meeting or the end. You are allowed to speak for 2-3 minutes depending on the chair.
The meeting will be at the Clark County Government Center. 500 South Grand Central Parkway, Las Vegas, Nevada 89155. There is some parking near the center and also parking at the RTC next door.
We will be meeting inside the pyramid. There is a large area there with tables and places we can organize. We will be writing letters, making posts to post on social media using the hashtag #CCSDGenderDiverse, and working on sound bites to talk to media.
We will be setting up at 5:30 to prepare for meeting. Look forward to seeing you there!
