In The Advocate Op-ed, Civil Rights Leaders Highlight Trump Judicial Nominees’ Attack on LGBT Rights

Yesterday, Kristine Lucius, executive vice president for policy at The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, and Harper Jean Tobin, director of policy at the National Center for Transgender Equality, penned an op-ed in The Advocate highlighting how Trump’s judicial nominees present a dangerous assault on the rights of LGBT people.

“Perhaps the most dangerous attack on transgender people coming from the White House is the least discussed: packing federal courts with judges who have demonstrated a similar hostility towards civil rights for LGBT people and other marginalized groups,” wrote Lucius and Tobin.
