Transgender Ban Is Wrong
I am saddened to see the new quest by the current White House to take away civil rights from our LGBTQ citizens.
The White House’s mission to eliminate protections for and marginalize our country’s citizens is an affront to what we, as a nation, should stand for.
Our government has to represent all of us and that includes people of color, the LGBTQ community, women, children, the disabled, the poor and the transgendered. We cannot continue to stand for this regression of moral standards any longer.
