[2/3] Seattle Area PSA: Trans Pride Safety Bulletin (cw: white nationalists)
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.
* DO donate here:

@mawr Very minor correction/nitpick: James Allsup wasn't the president of the UW College Republicans, but the WSU College Republicans.
He now holds a position in the local Republican Party (although the party disavows him and has stripped him of power, he still holds the title).
Source: I lived in Pullman during the height of his shenanigans and still live just across the state line in Moscow.
@ALWETP Thanks for the correction!
@mawr Of course!
I wish I didn't know enough about the guy to know this, though...
