Rural Nevada Democratic Caucus Chair Kimi Cole released the following statement in response to recently introduced anti-trans* legislation H.R. 8932:
“The LGBTQIA+ community has reaffirmed time and again our commitment to fighting against bigotry and injustice wherever it lives. This legislation is a showing of blatant disregard for the rights and lives of trans and non-binary people. We should be working to protect and strengthen Title IX, not turn the clock back on hard-fought progress.
“This bill is emblematic of the institutional barriers to equality and justice that remain in America. We must hold fast to our democratic principles of empathy, equality, and unity by standing together in opposition to this legislation. Let’s continue to embrace the diversity that empowers our communities and strengthens our collective goals.”
