Why do we protest?

On August 19, 2022, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (GA-14) introduced H.R. 8731, Protect Children’s Innocence Act, to the US House of Representatives. If passed, the bill would:

  • make it a felony to provide gender-affirming medical care including puberty blockers and hormones to transgender youth under 18
  • prohibit using federal funds for gender-affirming health care, including in Affordable Healthcare Act plans
  • bar colleges and universities from offering instruction on gender-affirming care
  • bar foreign doctors that have provided gender-affirming care to a minor from receiving visas or being admitted to the U.S.

We see this bill not only as an assault to transgender rights but also as potentially undermining individual freedom and rights to bodily autonomy for all in the U.S.

Therefore, on October 1, 2022, we call upon transgender/gender non-conforming people and their allies to take to the streets in multiple cities across the nation to demand federal protection for the rights of transgender/gender non-conforming people, as well as healthcare justice, housing justice, workplace justice, and reproductive justice for all.

We, transgender and gender non-conforming people of the United States demand our basic human right to life, liberty, and personal security. We demand the right for all of us, trans and cis people alike, to have education, health care, employment, and housing in a safe and dignified environment.
Trans liberation is liberation for all!
