Rhode Island mom Nicole Solas, 39, was forced to pay $1,200 to pay five officers to provide security for her event at the library

A conservative Rhode Island mother was forced to spend $1,200 of her own money to hire five police officers to protect her and those attending a lecture at a public library to fight the ‘transgender indoctrination’ of children .

Nicole Solas, 39, who is part of the right-wing Independent Women’s Network, was told police protection was needed for the event to go ahead after the Cranston Police Department received threats of violence at against him.

She had hired a cop herself, at a cost of $240, but was forced to shell out another $960 for four other officers, after learning that only that number could guarantee her safety.

Solas had already decided to bring a police officer before the event, but was told that more police would be needed.

“I organized this event but I became the target of this social media assault,” Solas told DailyMail.com. “Rhode Island lawmakers and college professors began to defame and bully me. They made calls for people to harass me and the library.

“The Cranston Police Department then received information that violent protesters were going to be in attendance – people with a history of violence and previous arrests. The police said I couldn’t organize the event unless I had five police details because it was a threat to public safety,” she explained.

“Everyone who attended had to be checked for weapons and explosives. My car was also hidden when I visited the library. It ended up being this very intense experience when it was supposed to be community outreach and civil, open dialogue.

“We are a pro-kids group that had a needed conversation about child health and safety, but we were branded anti-transgender.  We're not extreme, we just wanted to talk about how schools were hiding information from parents,' Solas told DailyMail.com

The event saw Chris Elston, an anti-puberty campaigner nicknamed “Billboard Chris”, as a guest speaker to talk about the “medicalization” of children.

Solas, meanwhile, spoke about education in schools.

In the past, anti-trans activists have called for books to be banned from schools such as “Gender Queer: A Memoir”, of which the Cranston Library System has several copies.

The 240-page book is described by School Journal Review as “a great resource for those who identify as non-binary or asexual as well as those who know someone who identifies this way and want to understand more.”

School Journal Review recommends reading lists to libraries as well as books to buy.

Less than 30 people attended the closed-door discussion entitled “What children learn about gender in school”. Outside, more than 200 people demonstrated on the lawn of the library.

Activists previously called on William Hall Library to cancel the event calling it “hate speech”.

Solas said such a description couldn’t be further from the truth.

“We are a pro-kids group that had a needed conversation about child health and safety, but we were branded anti-transgender. We are not extreme. We just wanted to talk about how schools were hiding information from parents. This is not an extremely position. Parents deserve to know. We also wanted to talk about the medicalization of children which we believe is a child abuse scandal,’ Solas told DailyMail.com.

Elston argued that in addition to encouraging gender nonconformity, children are taught in schools to adopt new gender identities, even to the point of physically mutilating their bodies.

The accusations have led to a campaign of harassment against the hospital and its doctors, reports boston.com.

Solas pushed back against the “anti-transgender” characterization.

“It is not hate speech to expose the medical abuse of children. This is what we Chris and I believe is the biggest child abuse scandal in history,’ Solas said.

Solas made national news last summer after filing 200 requests for public registration with the South Kingstown School Board as she investigated whether critical race theory was being taught in classrooms across the country. ‘State.
