President Trump recently doubled down on his attempts to disqualify transgender people from serving in the military in any capacity – this is shameful and blatant discrimination.
According to the Williams Institute, 150,000 members of the transgender community have bravely served this country in the armed forces and we can’t allow bigotry to take away that right.
The Anti-Defamation League stands against this unpatriotic decision and will join efforts to fight against this ban. ADL CEO Jonathan Greenblatt: “This policy is deeply objectionable – it devalues individual Americans and is blatantly discriminatory. We’ll fight against this unpatriotic ban of transgender troops. We cannot let bigotry stop Americans from serving their country.”
We will deliver the signed petition to the White House to protest the proposed ban.
We oppose the Trump administration’s efforts to ban transgender people from serving in the military. ADL and its allies stand for equality for all Americans and will fight against this unpatriotic effort to ban transgender individuals from proudly serving openly in our military.
