Transgender Victory at the Library Of Congress !!!

ACLU BLOG Great decision in Diane Schroer discrimination case!

"We’ve just gotten word from the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia that the ACLU has won our case on behalf of Diane Schroer, a retired Army Colonel who was offered a job as a terrorism research analyst at the Library of Congress, only to have the offer rescinded when she told her future supervisor that she was in the process of gender transition."

Gender Identity
The(ACLU) Project defends the rights of transgender and gender nonconforming people in employment, schools, and public accommodations. Transgender people's relationships should be recognized and legally protected, and gender identity must not be used against transgender parents in custody and visitation determinations. We work to include gender identity in state and local anti-discrimination policies, conduct outreach to transgender youth and students on their legal rights, and develop public education campaigns to raise awareness of transgender issues.
