Take Action Now

This morning the President of the United States tweeted that ‘The U.S. Government will not accept or allow transgender individuals to serve in any capacity in the U.S. Military.’

His purported reasons for this shameful and outrageous change in policy are another in a long list of falsehoods perpetrated by this president. He continues to dehumanize the very people who have pledged to risk their lives for our country and the values our nation stands for: freedom, liberty and justice. 

Our transgender brothers and sisters are Americans. They serve our country with honor and distinction, in spite of the very real discrimination they still face. We can and must do better.

All Americans must rise up in opposition to a president who would take us back and impose discrimination and bigotry rather than upholding our Constitution’s promise of equality and justice for all.

It should be lost on no one that this morning’s actions are just one piece of a concerted effort by this Administration to harm vulnerable and marginalized people. This effort includes ending health care for millions and the Attorney General’s threats to withhold federal funds from cities that protect the rights of undocumented people.

There is no longer any question about how this President and his Administration feel about LGBT people. They want to deny us equal protection of the law, they want to send us back into the closet, they want to stop us from occupying our rightful place as full and complete members of American society.
