CANCEL RACHEL IVEY’S SPEAKING DATES!
Please email and call these spaces and let them know that you are unhappy that they are allowing Rachel Ivey of Deep Green Resistance to speak at their space as part of the Resistance Rewritten speaking tour . Rachel Ivey considers trans women to be men; defends the leader of her organization, Lierre Keith, who equates being transgender with being “trans racial”; and is friends with Cathy Brennan, a well-known transmisogynist who has publicly outed trans youth, filed lawsuits against her critics, and campaigned against gender identity protections.
Please email and call these spaces until they cancel their events!
