I Am Jazz: Community Readings
Join HRC Foundation’s Welcoming Schools and the National Education Association (NEA) and teachers, parents and allies for the National I Am Jazz School and Community Readings on May 18, 2017.
People all across the nation will hold readings and discussions of the critically acclaimed book, I Am Jazz -- a children’s picture book by transgender teen and HRC Foundation Youth Ambassador Jazz Jennings and co-author, Jessica Herthel. The book is written to help people of all ages gain an understanding of transgender youth.
Hold events in schools, places of worship, libraries, bookstores, and homes to help increase understanding and build more inclusive environments for young people who need to know they are welcomed and loved -- now more than ever!
