Representation

So far this year, there have been 12 violent deaths of transgender people in the United States, and about 30 states still have no laws to protect transgender people when it comes to employment discrimination.

The Victory Fund says there are at least 20 transgender candidates for office at present.

Mel Wymore is going to take a second shot at making history as the first transgender member of the City Council — and says he was motivated by President Trump’s election.
