TLDEF & Pro Bono Partner Lawyers Support Transgender Americans Letter

"As law firms, attorneys and advocates, we proudly support human rights and human dignity for all transgender and gender nonbinary Americans. We are deeply troubled by the leaked Department of Health and Human Services memo proposing a discriminatory definition of gender. We stand with those potentially affected by renewing our commitment to relentlessly pursuing full equality for all Americans. We proudly stand with Transgender Legal Defense and Education Fund and our other civil rights partners in demanding justice and equality for all.”
