Emergency Rally for Trans Youth

February 5 @ 4:45 pm - 7:00 pm

All children and youth deserve access to life-saving, gender-affirming care and support. Unfortunately, Alberta premier Danielle Smith seems to disagree. Recently, she proposed the most restrictive anti-trans laws in Canada targeting trans youth.

Parents, youth, and caring community members are speaking up in opposition to Alberta Premier Danielle Smith’s egregious restrictions on the rights and freedoms of transgender youth and their families, her restrictive policies on sexual health education and interference in families’ healthcare.

Smith is coming to Ottawa on February 5th to speak at a right-wing event. Let’s show her that we won’t tolerate this assault on the rights and freedoms of transgender youth and their families.

Please join us and many other community advocates and organizations as we let Danielle Smith know how we feel about her egregious attacks on trans youth and families!

Please arrive early if you can, and please share this callout far and wide! The more people who are there earlier, the stronger our message will be!

If you are available to volunteer (we still need folks as marshals and to serve in care roles), please contact us at communitysolidarityottawa@gmail.com

As always, review the Safety Plan to see how to best keep yourself and your friends safe. In particular:

  • Do not give interviews to far right media outlets or “independent journalists”
  • Don’t debate far-right trolls. Drown them out with chants and noise! Especially if they are filming or livestreaming and looking for content.
  • Do not film supporters without their permission, and do not livestream. Do film the far right, fake journalists, and the police in order to protect yourself and your friends.
  • Protect your identity. Mask up, and use signs, flags, umbrellas, etc., to protect yourself from being photographed by far right activists or fake news outlets.
  • Do not talk to the police
  • Maintain situational awareness, and watch each others’ backs
  • Try to arrive and leave as a group
  • Check the weather, drive safely and dress appropriately! Give yourself plenty of time to arrive!
