It’s International Transgender Day of Visibility. Today and every day, we celebrate our trans and non-binary comrades and recognize the oppression they still face.
It’s International Transgender Day of Visibility. Today and every day, we celebrate our trans and non-binary comrades and recognize the oppression they still face. Here in PA, Republicans attempt to pass bills banning trans athletes from womens’ sports; in Florida the Governor has signed the now-infamous “Don’t Say Gay” bill.
As socialists, we fight for gender affirming health care for all, safety and equality under the law, and mass liberation. The path to liberation from racial capitalism includes the freedom and joy of trans people everywhere.
It’s also César Chávez Day. We remember the US labor leader and Latino civil rights activist who worked with Dolores Huerta and hundreds of others to organize farm workers in California. Read a past DSA statement on his legacy.
