October 20, 2023
To: All MoveUP Members
The labour movement in BC and across Canada is continuing to mobilize ongoing community efforts to stand up against the anti-trans organizing happening in BC.
We have learned that another round of protests targeting SOGI 123 and the 2SLGBTQIA+ community are being planned for Saturday, October 21, and there is a call for counter-protesters to come and help stand up for against hate in supportive of the 2SLGBTQIA+ community.
A list of the counterprotests that are happening can be found here.
If you feel comfortable attending one of these counterprotests in support of the 2SLGBTQIA+ community, we urge you to do so.
Thank you for helping us stand up against anti-trans organizing.
Other ways to support:
- Following 2SLGTBQIA+ activists and organizations to stay up to date on issues impacting the community.
- Calling out friends and family members when they are homophobic, biphobic, queerphobic and transphobic.
- Putting up signs in your homes and businesses to show that you support the community. Download a free No Space for Hate poster here.
