Today on Your Call: How far have we advanced in the struggle for transgender civil rights?


On today’s Your Call, we’ll have a conversation about Transgender rights. California Assembly Bill 1266, which went into effect on January 1st, prohibits public schools from discriminating on the basis of specified characteristics, including gender, gender identity, and gender expression. How is this law being received and what kind of difference is it making? And what challenges do transgender people face? Join the conversation on the next Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.

Guests:

Ilona Turner, legal director at Transgender Law Center

Joel Baum, director of Education and Training for Gender Spectrum
