About the Campaign
On July 26, 2017 President Trump attacked an estimated 15,000 patriotic transgender Americans who serve in our military and who put their lives on the line every day to keep us safe and free. Transgender people—like all Americans—should be judged for their qualifications, nothing more, nothing less.
There’s no place for discrimination in the military: it’s unpatriotic and will harm our military and our country.
President Trump’s false claims about “disruption” and “tremendous medical costs” have been thoroughly debunked and are a subterfuge for discrimination. The Defense Department has already concluded that transgender service members do not harm unit cohesion and allowing transgender troops to fulfill their duty will have no effect on military readiness or military budgets.
Our veterans and military deserve better. Help us fight against this vicious attack on dignity and equality. Tell President Trump this attack on transgender troops will not stand!
SPART*A is a nonpartisan, inclusive, member-based organization that is committed to providing support and ensuring equal opportunities, benefits, and rights for all LGBT servicemembers and veterans and their families.
All SPART*A members are committed to educating key stakeholders and the public about issues that impact LGBT servicemembers, veterans and their families in order to continue accomplishing our mission of strengthening the culture of inclusion and diversity within the United States military.
