NEW RightsUp #RightNow Podcast-Transforming the Law: Transgender Rights in the United States

by | May 30, 2017

In May of 2016, the Obama administration issued federal guidance that stated transgender people are protected according to United States civil rights law preventing sex discrimination in schools. It was a historic move, in response to a wave of cases making their way through federal courts regarding discrimination against transgender people. But in February 2017, the newly elected Trump administration rescinded the federal guidance issued under President Obama, and the legal landscape on this issue instantly changed. In this episode we talk with Corey Stoughton, former Senior Counsel at the U.S. Department of Justice, Civil Rights Division, about the future of transgender rights in America.
