ACLU Supporter –

This morning, we’re in state court in Texas challenging an unconstitutional health care ban targeting transgender youth, called S.B. 14.

For the last 18 months, thousands of families across Texas have been threatened by Governor Greg Abbott with the removal of their transgender children from their custody. Under the threat of S.B. 14, these same families have been forced to move out of state – one of our clients even separated her family to move her trans teen out of state and retain access to their health care.

If the court doesn’t intervene, the ban will take effect on September 1. That’s why we’ll be arguing in court for the next two days on behalf of hundreds of families and health professionals impacted by S.B. 14.

This challenge was filed by the ACLU, alongside the ACLU of Texas, Lambda Legal, Transgender Law Center, and the law firms Scott Douglass & McConnico LLP and Arnold & Porter Kaye Scholer LLP.

We’ll keep you as updated as possible on these critical hearings as they unfold – and know we are so grateful to have you with us in the fight for trans justice in Texas and across the country.

Thank you,

The ACLU Team
