1.4 million Americans at risk of losing civil rights law protections

This week, The New York Times reported on the Trump administration's "most drastic move yet in a governmentwide effort to roll back recognition and protections of transgender people under federal civil rights law."

The Trump administration's proposal would establish a legal definition of sex under Title IX that would "essentially eradicate federal recognition of the estimated 1.4 million Americans who have opted to recognize themselves — surgically or otherwise — as a gender other than the one they were born into."

Join me in standing proudly with the 1.4 million Americans who would be impacted by this proposal. Sign the petition: Protect transgender Americans from erasure by Donald Trump.

The impact is real, and already observable. In the short time this proposal has been public, a national suicide hotline for LGBTQ youth, The Trevor Project, has experienced a significant increase in young people reaching out to their 24/7 crisis services.

Stand with those seeking help. Sign your name.

This matters. You matter. I'm with you.


If you or someone you know is feeling hopeless or suicidal, contact The Trevor Project’s TrevorLifeline 24/7/365 at 1-866-488-7386. Text and chat counseling are available from 3–10pm EST every day at
