We’ve caught them bullying a trans kid to the brink of suicide in an effort to manufacture talking points. We’ve caught them committing election fraud over and over again. We’ve caught them lying in the press and lying to the public and today, we’ve  uncovered evidence of signature gatherers attempting to intimidate a trans advocate when she asked questions about what they were collecting signatures for.

“As far as we are aware, this is the largest number of volunteer signatures ever submitted in a California referendum campaign,” Karen England of Capitol Resources Institute*, a member of the PFAS executive committee, said in statement. But Masen Davis, executive director of the Transgender Law Center (TLC), said the 620,000 signatures submitted may not cut it in the end.

“We won’t know the final count of valid signatures for several weeks; however, based on prior referendum efforts in California, they likely needed to submit more than 620,000 signatures to qualify for the ballot,” Davis said. “No matter how this plays out, we will stand with our youth and their families and fight every effort to restrict their opportunity to succeed in school.”

PJI is one of the largest financial backers, and one of the leading organizers of the effort to repeal protections for trans children in California.
