Call to Action
Transgender and Gender Non-Conforming Communities experience marginalization, stigma, discrimination, and structural discrimination more than any other minority community in the world. Until recently, our existence was not counted, and our visibility was suppressed. Although the current administration has intentionally rolled back efforts to prevent inclusion our communities in the US census, individuals from the trans and gender non-conforming communities have mobilized and issued a call to action to dismantle the social structures that have oppressed us and disenfranchised our communities. Today, we stand together in solidarity, determined now, more than ever, to fight for equal rights to employment, education, housing and financial security, physical safety and security, and health parity.
Together we will deconstruct the policies, laws, and systems that have jeopardized the health and safety of our families and ourselves. Together we will call out and stand against anyone who discriminates, or initiates acts of violence against one of us. Because when they discriminate against one of us, it affects all of us. Today, recognizing our diversity, we speak out and demand our rights with one voice. The time has come for us to ignite and initiate change at every turn. The time has come for us to amplify our voices in the Nation’s capital, our local communities, and other cities across the globe. The time has come for us to march on the streets of Washington, DC and other metropolitan areas.
