Sunday the New York Times broke a story about a Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) memorandum outlining an effort to narrowly define gender as male or female and unchangeable. HHS is trying to legally define sex under Title IX, the federal civil rights law that bans gender discrimination. Effectively if they do this any federal civil rights protection under Title IX for Transgender people will be removed.
Regardless of your political affiliation this is damaging to transgender people. It is simply the latest in a series of attacks by the Trump administration on the civil rights of transgender people.
What can you do? Please stay informed on this issue and act and vote as you conscience demands.
