We have seen this Trump Misadministration ever since they gained power gleefully attempt to roll back and eviscerate the human rights of trans Americans.
While their initial actions such as attempting to ban trans people from serving in the military have been bogged down in the courts, others they have executed have been successful such as the Department of Education not taking student discrimination complaints.
In addition to wiping all mention of trans people off US government websites, the Sessions controlled Department of (In)Justice is tying to push a legislative interpretation that claims trans people aren’t covered under Title VII and the Civil Rights Act of 1964. and open us up to discrimination.
The persecution of trans people not only extends to our trans kids and their parents, but also extends to our trans immigrant population.
Since trans people are under attack by this government, we are doing what we must do in terms of standing up and fighting back against the oppression.
The Organization Latina de Trans en Texas (OLTT) is organizing a rally starting at 7 PM that will give our allies and accomplices a chance to show support to our local trans and gender nonconforming community.
It will also send the message that we’re here, we’re part of the Houston community and we won;t be erased.
Houston City Hall is located at 901 Bagby Street, and the rally will take place on the steps near the reflecting pool side of the building. Hope to see you there!
