The ACLU-PA has recognized the dire need for more education and advocacy around transgender rights, especially given the lack of non-discrimination protections here in the commonwealth of Pennsylvania. The Trans Justice Program aims to pave the way for the passage of statewide, comprehensive non-discrimination protections, which is a top priority for the ACLU of Pennsylvania and an issue we have worked on for more than a decade. We are committed to supporting and building the leadership of directly impacted transgender communities in this process. Together, ACLU-PA and transgender Pennsylvanians will engage in public education, strategic communications and direct advocacy and lobbying to create a more favorable climate for trans-friendly policy outcomes in the state.
