No young person should have to face the level of harmful attacks that are targeting trans youth right now.
In Nebraska, we face two bans specifically focused on trans youth:
- LB 574 would ban medical professionals from providing certain gender-affirming care for Nebraskans under 19 years old. This bill has advanced past its first round of debate and must go through two more votes to become law.
- LB 575 would ban trans youth from participating in school sports consistent with their gender identity. This bill remains in committee.
State Sen. Kathleen Kauth, who introduced both bills, prioritized the care ban. Sen. Clements prioritized the sports and spaces ban.
Now is the time to show Nebraska's trans young people that anti-trans politicians are not the only voices speaking out right now — that there are far more people out there who support them for who they are, who want them to grow up and thrive, and who will not stop fighting for them.
