In response to North Carolina filing a federal lawsuit today to defend their unjust Hate Bill 2 and Gov.
Here's the link to the full text of the original remarks as prepared for delivery and the video..
I want to thank my colleagues in the Civil Rights Division who have devoted many hours to this case so far, and who will devote many more to seeing it through. At this time, I’d like to turn things over to Vanita Gupta, whose determined leadership on this and so many other issues has been essential to the Justice Department’s work..
Thank you Attorney General Lynch, the DOJ and the Obama Administration, which has once again proven they are the undisputed champs when it comes to advocating for trans human rights.
This is more concrete evidence of elections mattering and who you vote for being more important than ideological purity. Do you actually think we would have gotten this type of unequivocal defense of our humanity and human rights from a Romney or Trump administration AG?
Hell no. It's why voting for the Democratic presidential nominee, whoever she is and Democratic candidates up and down the ballot will be critical to continued progress on trans human rights issues.
