Injustice at Every Turn

Injustice at Every Turn is a report of the National Transgender Discrimination Survey, conducted by the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force and the National Center for Transgender Equality. Here it’s presented by Russell Roybal from the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force at the Center on Halsted in Chicago, followed by a panel presentation of Chicago activists.

This is the largest study on the transgender community yet, with a diverse set of 6,450 transgender and gender non-conforming participants representing all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, Guam, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. It brings to light the rampant discrimination that transgender and gender non-conforming people face in every area of life. From the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force’s introduction, “This data is so shocking that it will change the way you think about transgender people and it should change the way you advocate.”
