A controversial speaker planned for a Tacoma Republican club’s monthly meeting sent activists into action, forcing the political group to three different restaurants Monday evening.

The series of events showed how quickly community activists can organize over social media and how easily businesses can unwittingly become part of a controversy.

The event, “Transgenderism and Our Children,” was scheduled for Monday evening at Knapp’s Restaurant. It was hosted by the 27th District Republican Virginia Taylor Club as part of its monthly meeting at the restaurant.

The speaker, Lynn Meagher, is a local activist and speaker widely considered to be a foe by the transgender community.
