As transgender issues have been gaining more attention in recent years, many states, organizations, and schools have altered non-discrimination laws and regulations to explicitly include transgender rights. Unfortunately, much progress needs to be made to fully grant transgender citizens all the rights and protections they deserve. This title examines the rights of the transgender community and the areas in which further action is still needed for their protection. Readers are presented with useful information on how to become trans allies and how to fight against trans discrimination in their day-to-day lives.
