Transrights are Human Rights

by Gregg Chadwick

On this day in 1948, President Truman ended segregation in the United States Armed Forces. Today in a hate filled series of tweets Trump brought it back. Trump's argument against transgender soldiers echoes one used against gays, women and blacks.  Even as I am calling my Senators and engaging in active measures to help preserve our healthcare, I am standing up against Trump's bigotry. As the Women's March organization puts it:

"The care of trans people is not a "distraction"—it is a human right."  #TransRightsAreHumanRights
