Sign the pledge to stop the Trump-Pence trans military ban
On July 26, 2017 President Trump tweeted that “the United States Government will not accept or allow transgender individuals to serve in any capacity in the U.S. Military.”
In that instant, the lives of more than 9,000 currently serving transgender military personnel and countless future enlistees were turned upside down.Years ago, after an extensive study, the Department of Defense announced that there is no reason transgender Americans cannot openly service in our armed forces.
The Trump-Pence transgender military ban contradicts facts and our values by discriminating against an entire class of persons based on who they are rather than whether they can do the job.
Help fight this attack on the dignity and equality of transgender Americans. Stand with us and with trans servicemembers. Sign this petition today!
