Statement on Transgender Service-Members

July 26, 2017

Earlier today, Founder & President Jacob Angel issued this statement following President Trump's tweets regarding transgender service members.

"The President's call to ban transgender individuals from serving in the military is unacceptable. Americans have reacted with such emotion and fervor to this announcement that we are losing focus on issues of immediate concern. In order for such a ban to take affect, a long and arduous process must take place within the Department of Defense. However, earlier today, the Senate once again tried to pass "Wealth-Care," which would have stripped millions of Americans of their healthcare coverage. While this latest attempt was a failure, we cannot stop fighting. The lives of our most vulnerable members of society - our children, the elderly, and the disabled -are in jeopardy. Be outraged. Be frustrated. But above all, be engaged and stay focused." said Angel
