Oppose HUD's Equal Access Rule Change!
Tell the Trump Administration NO to discrimination in shelters!
At an unthinkable time during a global pandemic, the Trump Administration has proposed gutting the Department of Housing and Urban Development's (HUD) Equal Access Rule for transgender individuals in shelters. This critical protection ensures that transgender people are treated in an affirming and equal way at a time when they need help most.
Studies have shown that 1/3 of transgender and non-binary individuals experience homelessness at some point in their life. They may be fleeing domestic violence or unsafe conditions and are in need of shelter away from harm.
Preserving access to gender segregated facilities does not put others at risk. However, denying access to transgender individuals it further puts them in harm's way.
Take a moment to stand with us and say NO to discrimination! We have started a message to oppose this rule for you but please feel free to add your own thoughts and experiences.
Edit this message to tell users that can't take action (because of their location) how to contribute. For example, consider adding a link to a petition or donation page that you have created, or add social sharing options so that these supporters can help get the word out on social media.
