How Tennessee is attacking LGBTIA+ Rights

ACLU of Tennessee Executive Director Hedy Weinberg, speaks with FSTV on the latest edition of #JustSolutions about how the state of #Tennessee is attacking LGBTIA+ rights.

President Biden officially proclaimed June 2021 as Pride month and vowed not to rest until full equality for LGBTQ Americans is finally achieved and codified into law. This is while multiple states have introduced and enacted laws that limit protections for the LGTBQ community and particularly target transgender youth.

One such state is Tennessee where opponents of the new laws say Transgender people in the state now fear being themselves in public. ACLU of Tennessee Executive Director Hedy Weinberg says embedding discrimination against transgender youth into state law is shameful.

Her organization is pushing back against these laws saying they’re unconstitutional. What’s behind this wave of anti-trans legislation sweeping through state legislatures and what can be done?
