The trans community is under attack across the United States. The Trump administration has emboldened the extreme right wing, enabled laws against basic civil rights for trans people, and withdrawn federal guidelines to protect trans students. Assaults, murders and fearmongering continue as our humanity is trampled.

March 28 was the day 17-year-old Gavin Grimm's case was scheduled to be heard by the US Supreme Court, begining a fight for bathroom access and basic rights for trans students everywhere. SCOTUS has since abruptly refused to hear the case, in light of the Trump administration's transphobic actions.

The people of Connecticut are coming together to show that we stand with trans people in our state and across the country. We need a broad, united movement to protect the lives of our most vulnerable youth and adults. We are parents, educators, activists, lawyers and young people. Trans rights are human rights, and we will speak out and march to show that Connecticut is ready to build a coalition to set an example for all other states. We will not stand by and wait for legislators to have a change of heart -- we will fight back, defend trans lives and demand trans liberation now!
