The Trans Refuge Bill

Anti-LGBTQ+ states like South Dakota are blocking necessary gender-affirming care for minors, denying them the support they need to thrive.

The proposed Trans Refuge Bill in Minnesota is a crucial piece of legislation for the trans community, protecting their rights and making space for them to thrive.

Trans and gender-expansive people are fighting for their rights in the political sphere, testifying in hearings and speaking out in support of the bill.

Representative Finke, the bill’s author, is building a testifiers bank to ensure that experts are present to clarify the bill’s intentions and goals.

Personal stories of trans and gender-expansive individuals are a powerful tool in gaining support for the bill, and community involvement is critical for its success.

Non-right-wing media must highlight this important legislation, as only a few states have passed similar bills into law.

Contacting legislators and community engagement are key to getting the Trans Refuge Bill passed and protecting the reproductive rights of transgender youth.
