Leyes de no discriminación

La discriminación puede ser una experiencia cotidiana para muchas personas transgénero y puede afectar a casi todas las áreas de la vida. los Encuesta Nacional de Discriminación Transgénero showed that 26% of trans people lost a job due to bias, 50% were harassed on the job, 20% were evicted or denied housing, and 78% of trans students were harassed or assaulted. And the transphobia that drives the discrimination is exacerbated when the trans person is a person of color and also faces compounding racism. Trans people of color face higher rates of discrimination.

Clear non-discrimination laws covering gender identity and expression are  an important part of the solution because they can help stop the discrimination before it happens. Clear laws often cause businesses to have policies against discrimination and train employees to follow those policies. At this point, much protection can also be found under state and federal sex discrimination law as well. Learn more in our Conozca su Centro de Derechos.

Sin embargo, las leyes en los libros no siempre se traducen en un trato justo real. Otro paso importante que deben tomar los gobiernos es emitir orientación o reglas sobre lo que significa la ley, como afirmar que las personas transgénero tienen el derecho de usar instalaciones específicas para cada sexo que coincidan con lo que son.

Si está trabajando para aprobar una ley o política estatal o local de no discriminación, NCTE puede ayudarlo.
