Tell Your Senators: Gorsuch Opposes Transgender Rights!
[ACTION ALERT]: Donald Trump's nominee for the Supreme Court, Neil Gorsuch, has a history hostile rulings towards the transgender community. In 2009, in an unpublished decision in the case of Kastl v. Maricopa County Community College, Gorsuch cited safety concerns in allowing an employer to fire a transgender woman. Six years later, in Druley v. Patton, Gorsuch joined an opinion that denied a transgender prisoner access to adequate hormone therapy among other necessities.

Call your senators today and tell them to vote against Gorsuch! With a ruling coming up about transgender rights, we can't afford to fill the bench with a justice who wont protect the LGBTQ community! Below is a script adapted from the National Center for Transgender Equality:
Hello, I am a constituent and I’m calling to ask Senator [NAME] to oppose Judge Neil Gorsuch for the Supreme Court. I am an ally of of/member of the LGBT community and I am particularly concerned that Judge Gorsuch will not protect the basic rights of transgender Americans. Please oppose his nomination. Thanks!
