Executive Director Andy Marra Speaks on this Historic Moment Celebrating Trans Young People and their Families
(WASHINGTON, DC - March 31, 2022) Today, the Transgender Legal Defense & Education Fund (TLDEF) issued the following statement by Executive Director Andy Marra in celebration of the White House's commemoration of our country's transgender young people and their families, at an event coordinated by TLDEF:
"Despite the myriad of engineered attacks in states across the country, today is a moment of joy for transgender people everywhere.
TLDEF, our colleague organizations, and the Biden Administration are steadfast in our commitment to building a future that allows transgender people to realize their full potential.
As a transgender movement, we have the responsibility to defend against unlawful and insidious assaults on our children with a strong, unified voice.
Today is a rallying moment for us to ensure these attacks are remembered as the turning point in the fight for transgender equality and justice."
