500 Women Scientists stands with the transgender community and demands justice for all transgender people. We firmly oppose the proposed policy to define transgender people out of existence, which is both cruel and unscientific.
This Take Action Tuesday—and every day—we’re sharing some actions you can take to show your continued support:
Support transgender organizations like Trans LifeLine. They are an important resource for the Trans Community. Since 2004, they have provided resources, a hotline and microgrants. Other great organizations: Transgender Law Center, Trans Justice Funding Project, Borealis Philanthropy.
Make sure you VOTE!
