Truman Project Statement on the Latest Attack on Transgender Americans

In reaction to reports of a Trump Administration memo detailing plans to eliminate protections and acknowledgement of transgender Americans’ rights, Truman Project Interim Executive Director Bishop Garrison issued the following statement:

“Transgender Americans proudly serve this country and their communities in a variety of ways. They help keep us safe through military service, work in our diplomatic and intelligence apparatuses, and beyond. This attack on their rights, and the rights of every transgender American, is unacceptable.”

“Diversity is and remains a great strength of this nation, and we stand with those who would be threatened by the small-mindedness and cruelty of policy proposals like these.”
