Speech from Debi Jackson, mother of a KC transgender girl, garners global attention

Debi Jackson didn’t expect to get much attention from a speech she did a few months ago about her transgender daughter, 7-year-old A.J., at Unity Temple on the Plaza. Instead, she was featured in an article on The Huffington Post, received a shoutout on Twitter from Ricky Martin and now has a viral video on her hands.
