Stand against transphobic legislation

Recent news

Victory!

We have made a difference! After Governor Kelly vetoed Senate Bill 208, we were so scared.  What if the veto got overturned ? We knew that only a few Senators needed to change their votes to create a super majority. But this morning, I heard a notification on my phone while I was at work and when I sneaked a peak at the screen I almost jumped for joy - the movement to overturn the veto failed!  This is a huge victory!  Thank you to everyone who signed our petition and to every Senator who chose to stand up for trans youth by opposing this legislation! To be clear, we are not out the of woods yet.  The movement to veto the bill failed by slimmest possible margin - only 1 vote.  We must remain vigilant and continue to shout our support for trans youth loudly and proudly. We will also continue in our efforts to grow support for the trans community so that, hopefully, we will be able to defeat future measures with a wider margin. We continue to keep a close eye on House Bill 2210, and will fight that as well if it gets brought to the House floor for a vote. If you oppose this bill, which would ban doctors from providing hormone replacement therapy and gender reassignment surgery to trans youth, you can voice your opposition by signing our petition : http://chng.it/5gqzg2tg Thank you again!! You have helped to protect children all over the state of Kansas and we cannot begin to tell you how grateful we are.
