Speaker Rendon Backs Transform California Goals

SACRAMENTO—Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon (D-Paramount) released the following statement on Transform California, a statewide campaign to ensure all transgender Californians live free from harm and discrimination:

“The rights of LGBT Americans, particularly transgender people, are under attack all over the country. We can’t let groups seeking to use bigotry as a means for profit or political gain get a foothold here in California. That’s why I am proud to join Transform California to promote respect, understanding, and safety for the transgender and gender nonconforming communities, and to uphold our laws that ensure that everyone can live their life as who they are, without fear or discrimination.”

Transform California is a movement led by a diverse coalition committed to making California a state where all transgender people can feel safe and live free from discrimination.
