8 Bills Across 7 States: Coordinated Anti-Transgender, Anti-LGBTQ Legislative Push Ramps Up In State Houses Across The Country

 | 
02/11/2021

The legislative fight to pass discriminatory anti-transgender legislation is ramping up in state houses across the country, with a significant number of bills expected to have hearings or votes this week. Opponents of equality failed to claw back marriage equality and failed in their push for bathroom bills. This legislation is simply the latest iteration of their failing fight. These bills are not addressing any real problem, and they’re not being requested by constituents. Rather, this effort is being driven by national far-right organizations attempting to sow fear and hate. Opposing equality is highly unpopular — even among Trump voters — and states that pass legislation that attacks our community will face severe economic, legal, and reputational harm. In many cases, these legislative pushes are being prioritized above COVID-19 response and relief.
