This year we have seen hundreds of bills introduced in state legislatures across the country explicitly seeking to discriminate against transgender people – and poll after poll shows that very few Americans personally know someone who is transgender, which can impede understanding and acceptance.
That's why the National Center for Transgender Equality, the Movement Advancement Project, and Freedom for All Americans came together with other state and national partners to create a video showcasing how anti-transgender discrimination hurts.
Treating transgender people fairly is just the right thing to do – that's what the ad captures so well. Will you take a minute to watch it?
You can watch the ad here, at http://www.fairnessusa.org
We have real-world proof that once people know more about transgender Americans, they join the side of fairness and support protections that make us safer and more welcome in our communities. I hope you'll join me in watching and sharing this video today:
