In response to an act of public harassment against one of its transgender clients, The Spahr Center held a rally on June 25 in downtown Fairfax to call for justice and equality for Marin’s LGBTQ+ community. The rally, attended by 75 people, was visited by Fairfax Chief of Police Chris Morin, who has asked the district attorney to charge a Marin couple with a hate crime for their verbal assault on Jasper Lauter, 17.
