Open Letter Supporting Trans Women and Girls

Doorways joins GLADD and more than 465 feminist leaders standing in solidarity with transgender women and girls in honor of Women’s History Month and Trans Day Of Visibility. See the open letter now.

“We acknowledge with clarity and strength that transgender women are women and that transgender girls are girls. And we believe that honoring the diversity of women’s experiences is a strength, not a detriment to the feminist cause. All of us deserve the same access, freedoms, and opportunities. We deserve equal access to education, employment, healthcare, housing, recreation, and public accommodations. And we must respect each person’s right to bodily autonomy and self-determination.”

As organizations supporting marginalized people in our community, we condemn xenophobia of all kinds. We stand in solidarity with our Asian American Pacific Islander community members, especially as they face rising incidences of harassment and violence. We continue to work toward the well-being and inclusion of people of all races, ethnicities and religions, and to use our voices to elevate their dignity and humanity.
