I Am Jazz Book Reading & Discussion


Youth First, a program of Resource Center, and Dallas City Council Member Adam Medrano are partnering to host an I Am Jazz book reading and panel discussion on Thursday, May 18, at 4 p.m. in the lobby at Dallas City Hall, located at 1500 Marilla St, Dallas, TX 75201. This event is in conjunction with HRC (Human Rights Campaign) and NEA (National Education Association) second annual National I Am Jazz School and Community Readings, in support of transgender youth. Council Member Medrano will read the book, followed by a panel discussion with representatives of the transgender community and youth service providers.

I Am Jazz is a children’s book written by transgender teen, Jazz Jennings. She is one of the first transgender children to talk publicly about her identity. At the age of 7, Jennings spoke with Barbara Walters on “20/20.” Following a year of unprecedented attacks on the rights and dignity of transgender young people – both at the state and federal levels – the day of readings are intended to foster safe and welcoming schools and communities for young people.
