Virtual Q&A Session: Trans Texans Rights in Jeopardy.
Last week, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton issued a new interpretation of state law that says that providing children with certain types of gender affirming medical care is abuse, which directly contradicts research and medical practice of licensed professionals across the state and the country. Gov. Greg Abbott followed with a directive ordering state agencies to investigate and report instances of such care as "child abuse." The general public has similar reporting responsibilities, according to Abbott, and will face criminal penalties for failing to report.
Join Adri Perez as they help provide information to the proposed law as well as ways to support the Trans* community during this time of attack on their livelihoods and rights.
