Clovis City Councilmember Diane Pearce has continued her attacks on the LGBTQ community! Several community members are calling on the Clovis City Council to set policies to prevent hateful rhetoric while using their official board member title. The board currently has no policy preventing these acts, so they can hot hold her accountable. There is also a process starting to explore a recall.
For those unfamiliar, this Councilmember has called for removing LGBTQ inclusive books from libraries, removal of a trans athlete from Clovis school sports competitions, and recently did an interview denying the existence of transgender individuals (22 mins in). Even with the rebuke from Mayor Lynn Ashbeck, these elected officials are only going to take action if they hear from us. Please take a few minutes to write/visit/join online.
