Transgender people should be free to be themselves at their jobs, in their schools, when accessing health care and in public places.

Unfortunately, many people use religion as an excuse to undermine transgender people’s rights. For example, businesses shouldn’t use religion to justify firing transgender employees. Health care providers should not use religion to block transgender people’s access to comprehensive insurance coverage, critical transition-related care or counseling. When religion is used as an excuse to discriminate, everyone’s freedom is compromised.

Americans United fights against discrimination directed at transgender people in the name of religion.
