The same folks in California that brought you Proposition 8 now claim they have enough signatures to try to repeal a law that gives rights to transgender kids in California schools.
LGBTQ Nation reports:
A coalition of conservative groups called Privacy for all Students submitted 620,000 signatures to get the initiative on the November 2014 ballot, said Frank Schubert, the political strategist handling the signature gathering effort. To qualify, at least 505,000 valid signatures must be submitted. To verify the signatures, each of California’s 58 counties will first check that the overall count is correct, then conduct a random sampling to make sure they are legitimate. After that, it is likely the state would order a full review.
It’s absolutely sickening to see these people going after transgender kids, some of the most vulnerable in our society. Of course, there may not be enough valid signatures to get on the ballot. But if there are, we need to do everything we can to protect these kids.
