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.

We Matter, We Count 2010

Although transgender people did not win recognition on the 2010 Census, advocates have a strategy and are recommending that individuals write in their own gender identities when filling out the form. Latino Equality Alliance, a Liberty Hill grantee, is helping spread the word by distributing this video made by transgender people in Los Angeles.
