Support AB 1266!
:: Sign the petition
:: Donate nowTomorrow, one brave 16-year old transgender boy from Manteca will travel to Sacramento and tell the Governor: he must sign AB 1266, authored by Assemblymember Tom Ammiano. Will you stand with him?
Join Ashton's petition so that he can present 5,000 signatures to Governor Jerry Brown!
"The California legislature passed a bill that would finally allow me go to school as myself — a regular boy.
But first Governor Brown must sign it.
By prohibiting discrimination against transgender students, the School Success and Opportunity Act (AB 1266) would ensure schools understand their responsibility for the success and well-being of all students. For me, this bill means I'd be able to fully participate in all of my classes, try out for sports teams, and stay on track to graduate.
Tell Governor Brown: please sign AB 1266 and help make our schools places where everyone can succeed. By signing this bill into law, he can help ensure students like me can stay in school and graduate."
Bill co-sponsors Equality California, GSA Network, Transgender Law Center, National Center for Lesbian Rights, and Gender Spectrum will be with Ashton tomorrow as he heads to the Governor's office. Follow along on Facebook and Twitter.
Please sign today to stand with Ashton and make sure your voice is heard.
