Equality California is suing Donald Trump

Today, Equality California along with our pro bono law firm Latham & Watkins LLP filed a lawsuit in the United States District Court for the Central District of California challenging President Trump’s August 25 directive banning transgender people from enlisting or serving openly in the military.

Equality California, along with four current transgender service members and three transgender individuals who seek to join the military, sued the Administration to ensure that this ban is permanently struck down. As the state with the most LGBT people, the most U.S. service members, and the most transgender service members, Equality California is committing to fight tooth and nail to ensure that this ban is not implemented in California.
