Many transgender and gender-nonconforming people in the U.S. are experiencing fear and anxiety right now in the wake of the election, particularly our most marginalized people on the front lines — transgender youth, immigrants, and people of color. 

It is important for transgender people to know that there is an army of smart lawyers and activists who are committed to protecting them and fighting for them. 

I’ve heard from many people that they feel scared and alone, but they are not alone, especially now. 

The fact that this election has threatened the rights of so many communities means that we have more allies than ever before. 

We will continue to fight the battle in federal and state courts and we will mobilize the resistance on the ground. We are up for this fight.
