Call to Action

It’s hard to keep track of all the anti-trans legislation being introduced in the state legislators, but I just found a great resource — TransLegislation. I encourage you to click on your state to see what has been introduced, and then get in contact with your local legislators (find their names and contact info HERE) to tell them you do NOT want these bills passed at all. It’s up to all of us to protect the trans community.
