In my home state of South Carolina, just days into the 2024 legislative session, extreme lawmakers have already voted to advance legislation blocking transgender youth from accessing affirming medical care. A House vote could happen as soon as today.
South Carolina is one of the last states in the South where trans youth can access the medically-necessary care they need. That means if this bill passes, it will harm not just transgender youth in SC – but so many other families across the South who have traveled to South Carolina to receive medical care after the passage of bans in their home states.
Transgender youth in South Carolina should be focused on their new semester at school like all other young people – but instead they are the targets of a cruel political agenda. Can you let them know they aren’t alone by sending a quick message of support and love?
Send some love to transgender youth and their families, as well as the entire team organizing against the bill, in South Carolina. We’ll share your messages with advocates and families in SC.
