[1/3] Seattle Area PSA: Trans Pride Safety Bulletin (cw: white nationalists)
There's a Trump rally scheduled at the same time as Seattle Trans Pride, likely intending to disrupt the event.
Here's the info I've found:
• They're likely meeting at 4th and Columbia downtown & will march from there
• The hosting group has connections with known white nationalist movements
• The Gender Justice League is aware of this and is requesting donations for additional private security for Seattle Trans Pride

WHAT CAN WE DO?
• DO attend the event with friends and stick together!
• DO NOT engage the fascists (while they're in a group).
• DO NOT call the police to ask for their help. The SPD is NOT an ally of the transgender community and is not welcome at Trans Pride. Instead, the Gender Justice League has asked for donations to cover the costs of additional private security.
