Script: I’m calling to ask Congressperson [_____] to vocally denounce HR 2796, the Civil Rights Uniformity Act, as an unacceptable bigoted assault on transgender people’s rights.
Call Rep. Julia Brownley: (CA-26): DC (202) 225-5811, Oxnard (805) 379-1779, T.O. (805) 379-1779
OR Rep. Salud Carbajal: (CA-24): DC (202) 225-3601, SB (805) 730-1710 SLO (805) 546-8348
Sponsored by 9 GOP members of the House, this bill excludes transgender people from federal civil rights protections against gender discrimination, banning gender identity as “a protected class in Federal law or policy” without congressional approval.
Hate-based laws fuels anti-trans attitudes and sends a message to trans people that their rights and lives are unimportant.
