Statement Against Anti-Transgender Attacks

Our Redeemer’s has signed on to a statement by Seattle Pride against anti-trans attacks. This will be shared with those who are being targeted. The statement begins: “Seattle Pride is joined by our community partners in emphatically denouncing Texas Gov. Greg Abbott’s transphobic attempt to criminalize gender affirming healthcare. Gov. Abbott’s order only further stigmatizes the transgender community and prevents access to treatment that can prevent suicide and depression among transgender youth… We must stand together to prevent inaccurate, harmful, and hateful beliefs about the trans community. It is critical that we as a community stand against this transphobic attack on transgender youth and families.”
