Over the past decade, anti-LGBTQ+ groups and Republican-controlled state legislatures have waged relentless attacks to restrict the rights and health care of transgender people, from restricting access to public spaces, to denying transgender youth health care, to prohibiting transgender students from equally participating in school and sports activities.

This has been the worst year for anti-LGBTQ legislation since 2015, and state legislatures are doubling down on anti-transgender legislation and rhetoric demonizing our youth, with more than 110 bills introduced across 33 states since January.

The stakes are high. Unless we act quickly, transgender children will be denied life-saving, medically necessary health care, the ability to fully participate in public education, and their right to be treated equally with their peers.

It's not just in state houses. Our state and federal courts will likely be the last lines of defense for trans youth, and many of these courts have been stacked with dangerous anti-LGBTQ+ extremists.

Please join speakers:

--Rakim Brooks, President at the Alliance for Justice
--Chase Strangio, Deputy Director for Transgender Justice at the ACLU
--Katelyn Burns, Contributing Writer at Vox
--Rodrigo Heng-Lehtinen, Executive Director of National Center for Transgender Equality
and other leading advocates
