I am Jazz – Community Book Reading in Support of Transgender Youth
December 7, 7pm, in the Sanctuary
The HRC Foundation’s Welcoming Schools program and the National Education Association (NEA) are teaming to sponsor national “I Am Jazz” school and community readings to show support for transgender youth. Why, you ask? The HRC states, “Now more than ever it is imperative we show our transgender and non-binary youth that they are seen, accepted and loved. Trans youth who go without affirmation face increased risks of depression, substance abuse and suicide attempts. Even if you don’t know any trans or non-binary youth in your community, hosting [or attending] a reading is an incredibly powerful way to show your support.” ActionGA is hosting a reading of the children’s book “I am Jazz” authored by Jazz Jennings and Jessica Herthel. Please join us as we support transgender youth in our community. We will read the book, have a short discussion, and work on a simple poetry activity aimed at helping us all explore our identity through poetry. Youth and adults are welcome. This is a free event.
