Transgender Legal Defense and Education Fund urges support

The Transgender Legal Defense and Education Fund has asked for awareness and support in the urgent fight to protect trans health. 

The TLDEF is asking media and individuals to get behind a social media campaign to help raise awareness and galvanize support for transgender rights.

“We have until October 3rd to let the Biden Administration know that we need a health care law (Section 1557) to protect trans and nonbinary people from discrimination in health care. And unfortunately, we see the opposition overwhelmingly bombarding the comment portal in response to Section 1557, so we need to galvanize more members and allies of the trans community to share their stories. 

With your help getting this important message out, we can ensure we are being heard on the federal level and that our community gets the protections we need and deserve! 

Below please find suggested messaging to join the fight:

  • We have the opportunity to secure critical federal health care protections for trans people. You can make that happen by telling the Biden Administration that you support trans health care NOW!
  • The Trump administration changed the rules to make it harder for trans people to access health care. Now’s our chance to overturn those hateful policies and protect trans people! It’s time to #ProtectTransHealth.
  • When we had to fight hateful anti-trans changes to health care laws under Trump, 20,000 of you stepped up. We can now overturn those policies and #ProtectTransHealth! Will you help us reach 20,000 again?
  • Let’s end discrimination against #trans people in health care! Tell the Biden Administration to #ProtectTransHealth. Visit and send your support.
