ACTION: Jazz Jennings Reading Day is Harming Children

THIS HURTS CHILDREN

The Issue

In February, the 4th annual “Jazz & Friends National Day of School and Community Readings” took place in various venues across the US. This event is cosponsored by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s Welcoming Schools program and the National Education Association (NEA). The reading of “I Am Jazz” (and the other recommended books) harms children by indoctrinating them with false ideas that they can be born in the wrong body, change their sex, and live a life of medicalization and drug dependency. Jazz himself is a victim of this dangerous social contagion.

Dear Supporter of “Jazz & Friends National Day of School and Community Readings,”

I urge you to educate yourself about the harm to children this reading event causes. A good place to start is with this endocrinologist’s evaluation:

“’I Am Jazz’ contains both false information and very troubling omissions. Children who are experiencing dysphoria will likely be harmed by this book, as will children who do not have the condition.”

Jazz himself is a victim of this dangerous social contagion.

Some of the documented harms include:

  • Indoctrinating young children with the false notions that they can be born in the wrong body and can change their sex sets them up to live a life of medicalization and drug dependency with very serious health risks.
  • After a reading of “I Am Jazz,” kindergarten children have expressed fears that they will turn into the opposite sex.
  • This event encourages children who think they are “transgender and non-binary” to undertake dangerous medical procedures, and effectively erases the 80% of children who will eventually grow up to be lesbian, gay, or bisexual.

Why is this happening? Follow the money.

Sincerely,
[YOUR NAME]
