STATEMENT FROM LIBERTY HILL PRESIDENT AND CEO SHANE GOLDSMITH ON PRESIDENT TRUMP’S MILITARY BAN ON TRANSGENDER AMERICANS

“Members of the transgender community are more likely to be victims of hate crimes and job discrimination, which are devastating repercussions of denying a group of people their human rights. We are a stronger nation when we include all people in all of our civic institutions, and when we stand firmly as allies in the fight for social justice and equality for all. Liberty Hill stands with transgender individuals in and out of the military services, and we will continue to invest strongly in building leadership in the transgender community and ensuring that Los Angeles is a model for programs and policies that allow all people to reach their full potential.”

Liberty Hill was named one of America’s top ten funders of LGBTQ African American communities (2014), top ten funders of LGBTQ criminal justice reform work (2015), and top ten funders of Asian American and Pacific Islander LGBTQ communities (2012). We offer guidance in this video on How to Be a Trans Ally and encourage you to learn more about Liberty Hill’s LGBTQ leadership efforts at https://www.libertyhill.org/lgbtq-equality.
