Stop Black Lives Matter from teaching & affirming queer and transgender behavior in public schools schools
After attending an open house event On Wednesday December 18th, 2019 5:12 PM I received an email from Teaching for change that included three documents, titled: 13 Guiding Principles, Talking to young kids about Black Lives Matter guiding principles, and BLM Coloring Book. Within the documents, language was found that read:
“9. Queer Affirming-We are committed to fostering a queer‐affirming network. When we gather, we do so with the intention of freeing ourselves from the tight grip of heteronormative thinking or, rather, the belief that all in the world are heterosexual unless s/he or they disclose otherwise.
11. Transgender affirming-We are committed to embracing and making space for trans brothers and sisters to participate and lead. We are committed to being self-reflexive and doing the work required to dismantle cis-gender privilege and uplift Black trans folk, especially Black trans women who continue to be disproportionately impacted by trans-antagonistic violence
12. Black families-We are committed to making our spaces family-friendly and enable parents to fully participate with their children. We are committed to dismantling the patriarchal practice that requires mothers to work “double shifts” that require them to mother in private even as they participate in justice work”
The Zion Church of 1875 does hereby order all involved parties to IMMEDIATELY “cease and desist” distributing to schools and teachers all documentation that includes “The 13 Black Lives Matter Guiding Principles”, any themes regarding removing patriarchy, or any themes regarding trans or queer Affirming.
