They discuss:

  • An update on Doe v. Minnesota, a historic lawsuit that resulted in most of Minnesota’s abortion restrictions being ruled unconstitutional.
  • Victories for transgender rights involving the Affordable Care Act and protecting transgender students’ rights’ in schools.
  • Despite trends in other states, Minnesota stands out for its efforts to protect LGBTQ+ individuals through legislation and legal avenues.
  • Balancing Messaging and Progress: Inclusive laws in Minnesota counteract harmful messages affecting LGBTQ+ individuals. Progress we have made in Minnesota offers hope amid setbacks in some states.
  • Strategy: As we were unable to rely on the federal courts to protect our rights after 2016, Gender Justice shifted our focus to state court litigation and leveraged the Minnesota Human Rights Act in our work.
