Support SB 219 in California for LGBT Senior Citizens
0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!
SB 219 was a bill proposed by Senator Scott Wiener in February 2017. The bill was to support LGBT senior citizens in long term care facilities. This would require facilities in California to respect the gender of a transgender human being. This means not forcing them to share rooms or use bathrooms that identify with their biological sex, but rather their "new" gender. This also means not allowing discrimination based on gender identity or sexuality. If a worker at a facility continues to misgender a patient they can face fines or possibly up to a year of jail time. Many republican organizations are against SB 219 and argue that "forcing" someone to use correct pronouns is against the first amendment and that making females share rooms with transgender males could lead to sexual assault. Help convince those who oppose SB 219 how beneficial the bill will be.
