Virtual Briefing: Protecting Transgender Kids in North Dakota

The discussion centers on Gender Justice’s expanded work into North Dakota and South Dakota, a region often used as testing grounds for right-wing movements.

Gender Justice is challenging discriminatory laws, promoting LGBTQ rights, and reproductive rights, and bolstering legal capacity.

Christina Sambor gives an in-depth overview of North Dakota’s current gender justice landscape. Notably, the state’s recent legislation targeting transgender rights has sparked significant concern. Bills such as HB 1254 prohibit gender-affirming care for minors, restricting treatments such as puberty blockers and potentially subjecting medical professionals to legal consequences.

Brittany Stewart underscores this legislative push against trans rights as a façade of child protection, rooted in deep-seated bias against the trans community.
