NCDP Statement on President Trump’s Attempted Erasure of the Trans Community

Raleigh – NC Democratic Party Chairman Wayne Goodwin and President of LGBTQ Democrats Ginger Walker released the following joint statement in response to the Trump Administration’s potential dismantling of Title IX protections for transgender individuals:

“The Trump administration’s attempt to erase transgender individuals and the transgender community is despicable and disheartening. We know that our diversity is our strength and that validating the existence and identities of our LGBTQ allies is vital for ensuring their acceptance, prosperity, and safety. North Carolinians must send a strong message to President Trump and politicians who seek to legislate hate and discrimination that the transgender community will not be erased. That starts here at home by electing representatives who will fight for equality and justice for everyone in our state.”
