Understanding the Trump Administration's Transgender Military Ban: How We Got Here and What Comes Next?


Meeting Description:

Please join the LGBT Law Section of the Federal Bar Association (FBA) for a free webinar to discuss the Trump Administration’s transgender military ban. In April 2019, the United States Armed Forces implemented its ban on transgender troops, barring transgender individuals from serving openly in the military, and denying servicemembers medical care for gender reassignment. Military academies will similarly ban transgender individuals from attending the schools under the implemented policy. Four lawsuits will continue to challenge the policy on its merits. This panel, featuring two leading and nationally recognized attorneys, Mary Bonauto, Civil Rights Project Director at GLBTQ Legal Advocates & Defenders (GLAD), and Shannon Minter, Legal Director of the National Center for Lesbian Rights (NCLR), will address the ban’s background, how it affects current members of the military, the contested claimed justifications for the ban, and the routes forward in the courts, congress and public opinion.
