Fighting Back Against Anti-Trans Hate Across the Country
There is no denying this is a difficult moment in our history. But together, we will stand up to the anti-trans and anti-LGBTQ+ bullies who peddle fear and intimidation to advance their hateful agenda. Join Lambda Legal for a special live virtual event, National Call: Fighting Back Against Anti-Trans Hate Across the Country on Thursday, March 30th from 2:30 pm – 3:30 pm PT / 5:30 pm – 6:30 pm ET to hear a national update on the efforts they are undertaking to address the ongoing attacks against the trans community.
The event will feature a variety of speakers, including Lambda Legal CEO Kevin Jennings and legal staff Carl Charles, Sasha Buchert, and Sruti Swaminathan, who are leading Lambdaʻs transgender rights advocacy. The panel of speakers will discuss how Lambda Legal is fighting back against these attacks on various fronts—from litigation in multiple states and the Supreme Court to policy initiatives and advocacy in state legislatures.
On the call, attendees will hear:
• A national overview of the legislative attacks against the trans community, which includes a brief historical context of LGBTQ+ rights and Lambda Legal’s work fighting for lived equality for all LGBTQ+ people and everyone living with HIV/AIDS.
- • An overview of the ways Lambda Legal is involved in fighting back, including litigation, policy advocacy, and public education.
- • A summary of Lambda Legal’s lawsuits against anti-trans legislation, such as B.P.J. v. West Virginia State Board of Education, defending our client, Becky Pepper-Jackson’s right to participate in sports, as well as an upcoming lawsuit we are filing in Tennessee challenging the state’s newly enacted anti-trans healthcare ban.
