Poll Worker Information | California Secretary of State

With the 2020 election coming up this November, Alameda and San Francisco Counties are facing a shortage of volunteer poll workers. Poll workers help ensure that everyone gets to practice their right to vote. There are opportunities in both counties for bilingual poll workers. All poll worker opportunities are paid, so you can earn some extra income while serving your community. Open to folks age 16 and up! To indicate your interest, use this link. https://www.sos.ca.gov/elections/poll-worker-information/

Before each statewide election, thousands of Californians sign up to help put on the single most important event we hold in a democracy. County elections officials depend on reliable, dedicated teams of poll workers to make every Election Day run smoothly.

How Anyone Can Help Trans People In Their Lives, Written From The Perspective of a Trans Man – TWLOHA

Check out this excerpt from a great essay by Gavin Grimm on how people can support their trans loved ones. Gavin says, "It is readily obvious that affirming trans people and creating a world where we can live freely and authentically leads to better outcomes for our mental and physical well-being. It doesn’t require a study, although there have been some. All people want to be respected, seen and heard for who they are." Read the full excerpt below.

The three mini-documentaries in "Trans in America: A Documentary Series," available to watch for free online, reveal the daily impact of discrimination on three families as they battle with bathroom bills, vulnerability in employment and housing, and the aftermath of incarceration. Of "Texas Strong," about a seven year old transgender girl and her mother, chapter member Anita says "It's a great film and very poignant." Thanks, Anita, for the recommendation!

Hi there! We are looking for LGBTQIA+ individuals to participate in a research study to improve our current understanding of their valuable life experiences! In particular, we are interested to know more about what it’s like for LGBTQIA+ people to hide their gender identity and/or sexual orientation. Being “closeted” or “in the closet” is common among LGBTQIA+ individuals and can impact who they are, so we are also interested in how these experiences are related to current well-being. We need participants who identify broadly as LGBTQIA+, are at least 18 years old, and reside in the United States. As part of your participation, you will be asked to fill out an anonymous, online questionnaire (https://umt.co1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_esboO7M7McLFWtL) to tell us about your experiences. The survey should take between 25-50 minutes to complete. Your participation is completely voluntary, and you can leave the survey at any time. Those accessing the survey will have the chance to enter a drawing to win one of 10 $20 gift cards to Amazon.com! PARTICIPATE HERE: https://umt.co1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_esboO7M7McLFWtL Thanks so much!
Bob Minor: "There are many who can’t be as open about the syndrome as Michelle Obama. But that doesn’t mean that it isn’t there in the depths not just of women but of anyone who was taught by their culture that their race, sexual orientation, gender, economic status, able-bodiedness, etc. is somehow lesser and not the 'norm' of a culture that has thrived on oppression."

Are you passionate about social justice? Would you like to become a more effective ally who actively resists the oppression of LGBTQ folks in everyday encounters? Are you motivated to disrupt the bigotry that is endorsed in our current political climate and facilitate positive cultural shifts? If so, don't miss this free upcoming training! “Beyond Acceptance: Empowering LGBTQ allies to unpack microaggressions, disrupt implicit bias, and facilitate interpersonal healing.” Explicit attitudes of acceptance towards LGBTQ people have been steadily increasing over time. However, our community continues to endure marginalization through implicit bias which is invisible and expressed through daily interpersonal interactions. These microaggressions cause personal harm, perpetuate minority stress, and reinforce stigma. It is essential for allies to actively challenge and transform implicit bias that is expressed within interpersonal interactions so that restorative, affirmative, and equitable experiences are created for our community. Disrupting bias may not be easy, but is well worth the result of enhanced well-being, improved interpersonal relationships, and productive cultural shifts. This training will help you gain confidence in taking direct actions of solidarity that will help resist oppression, redistribute privilege, and support social justice. LEARNING OBJECTIVES: * Define implicit bias and microaggressions. * Make invisible perspectives visible: Recognize and identify cultural specific microaggressions and the implicit bias they express. * Understand detrimental impacts, harm caused, and psychological dilemmas. * Review common LGBTQ microaggression themes. * Recognize microaggressions as the active manifestation of implicit bias and cultural oppression. * Review and practice action steps to unpack microaggressions and disrupt implicit bias through self-monitoring and accountability. * Identify personal barriers to taking action, and review ways to overcome. * Explore personal action plan to integrate microresistance into daily life. Cost: Free of charge Date: October 20th 2018 Time: 3:00-6:10pm Location: Oakland LGBTQ Center, 3207 Lakeshore Ave, Oakland CA 94610 Space Limited - Please register at: https://chelseademartemft.com/trainings/
