At the ACLU of Missouri, we dream, we believe in, and we demand a future where our 25,000 transgender Missouri neighbors can rely on their constitutional rights.
The phrase we use to describe this work is “Trans Justice.”
But what does Trans Justice mean?
It means striving to raise awareness about the challenges faced by trans, non-binary, intersex and gender non-conforming (GNC) Missourians. It means challenging barriers to true safety and justice in our state. At ACLU-MO, we work to lift up trans and GNC leadership. And, we steward a network of organizers committed to making Missouri a more welcoming, inclusive state.
To help the larger community understand this work, we are mounting a 10 Days of Trans Demands (#10DTD) campaign for a second year in a row. The campaign starts November 10th and goes until Trans Day of Remembrance on Weds, Nov 20th.
We urge you to help us uplift our campaign by following us on social media and sharing our words with your community.
