Tennessee’s SB1, which bans access to gender-affirming care for transgender people under the age of 18, is now in effect, following a cruel and rushed ruling from the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals – and we know that this is a challenging time for transgender youth and their families.
We know that families have questions and concerns – that’s why community and advocacy organizations are coming together for an Emergency Town Hall on TN’s Anti-Transgender Law, a virtual event focused on helping families navigate access to the gender-affirming care they need while feeling supported and uplifted by their communities. This event will be held Wednesday, July 19 at 7pm CT / 8pm ET, and will be hosted by inclusion tennessee, Campaign for Southern Equality, OUTMemphis, the ACLU of Tennessee and the Tennessee Equality Project.
At the event, we will discuss the court ruling, resources available, including patient navigation support, referrals to out-of-state gender-affirming care, and emergency grants for families of transgender youth. There will be plenty of time for questions. Please RSVP below. By providing your e-mail address, you may receive occasional email updates from the ACLU of Tennessee, the ACLU, the Campaign for Southern Equality, inclusion tennessee, OUTMemphis, and the Tennessee Equality Project.
Need immediate support? If you need help finding out-of-state providers of gender-affirming care or funding for travel, mental health expenses, or whatever you need, please get in touch here.
