Donald Trump is attacking the already marginalized

Republicans and the Trump Administration are going low again — really low. This time, in an obvious effort to whip up their base before last week's election, they've targeted transgender people. And their attack is horrifying.

They want to legally define gender as fixed at birth, meaning that the law simply won't recognize trans Americans.

In other words, Donald Trump wants to roll back rights for 1.4 million transgender Americans by making them disappear in the eyes of the law – complete erasure.

Sign the petition: Protect transgender Americans from erasure.

This is sickening. The trans community is already marginalized, struggling with high rates of suicide and the constant threat of hate crimes. This cruelty from their government is more than heartless, it's dangerous.

Sign the petition: Tell the Trump administration to stop discriminating against transgender Americans.
