In response to the leaked DHHS memo seeking to redefine gender & erase transgender Americans, we at TLDEF are reaching out to YOU, our partner attorneys and law firm employees (inclusive of non-legal staff!), to sign on to the following statement:

Here is the statement:

"As law firms, attorneys and advocates, we proudly support human rights and human dignity for all transgender and gender nonbinary Americans. We are deeply troubled by the leaked Department of Health and Human Services memo proposing a discriminatory definition of gender. We stand with those potentially affected by renewing our commitment to relentlessly pursuing full equality for all Americans. We proudly stand with Transgender Legal Defense and Education Fund and our other civil rights partners in demanding justice and equality for all."
