This just in. We're passing through OH now and got the news. Please spread the word. Call your Senator now--we need a quick reconciliation so that this bill can be signed quick. This will be the Federal Governments first law passed to specifically EXPAND rather than LIMIT the protections of transgender, gay and lesbian people ever. Its small comfort for many, certainly, but a good start.
And Judy Shepard has earned this. Its been 11 years this week she's been fighting for this law and for all of us to feel a little bit safer.
This law acknowleges our humanity, rather than ignore it. Its a happy day!
