HRC OPPOSES PROPOSED HUD RULE CHANGE THAT WOULD REMOVE PROTECTIONS FOR TRANS AND GENDER NON-CONFORMING PEOPLE: “This proposed rule is unconscionable and yet another instance of the administration’s blatant discrimination against transgender people, while needlessly putting lives at risk,” said HRC Government Affairs Director David Stacy (@david_stacy). “In the midst of a global pandemic and an epidemic of ongoing violence against transgender and gender non-conforming people, the Trump-Pence administration is encouraging and facilitating discrimination against transgender people. Enough is enough. It’s time to hold them accountable at the ballot box.” More from Vox and American Independent.
