We will not be silent – Our Statement on Transgender Military Ban

Equitas Health strongly condemns President Trump’s announcement to no longer accept or allow transgender individuals to serve in the United States military. This unjust, unreasonable and unacceptable decision is an attack on our LGBTQ community and one for which we will not stand by and allow. This malicious ban is a public display of intolerance by the current administration and is a dishonor to our service members in the U.S. military who fight side by side regardless of gender identity to protect our freedoms.

Equitas Health stands in solidarity with transgender service members and their families affected by this decision. We call on the Trump Administration to immediately reconsider this decision and call on our supporters to join us in denouncing this gross display of bigotry.
