The U.S. Trans Military Ban Goes into Effect Tomorrow — Will you raise your voice in support?

The Trump Administration’s trans ban is so incredibly damaging on multiple levels and the global implications are far reaching.

The US military is the largest employer of Trans people. The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is one of the largest healthcare providers for Trans people. The removal of Trans people from the military means a complete removal from their access to healthcare. If trans people cannot get the live saving healthcare they need and if the military that they so bravely volunteered to serve won’t support them — who will? And where do they turn?

The simple answer as to why we support the fight against the Trans military ban is because Trans Rights are Human Rights.

Why are we supporting Minority Vets of America in their work? Because we know the threat that trans people face worldwide. Just last week a trans woman was brutally attacked in the streets of Paris while dozens of onlookers did nothing.

We know globally the violence that trans people face. We know the violence that trans women face. As a women’s rights organisation we will continue to unite with our trans family and speak out in support with them.
