Join NCTE as we honor Rep. Tammy Baldwin for her dedication advancing transgender equality at our annual celebration of our allies in the movement for transgender equality, Moving Forward Together.
“Representative Baldwin is one of our most dedicated advocates in Washington for laws that take meaningful action to end discrimination based on gender identity. She’s one of the leaders of the LGBT Equality Caucus, she was at the forefront of the push for the Employment Non-Discrimination Act, and she is working tirelessly to ensure that all people in this country have access to quality, affordable health care,” noted Mara Keisling, NCTE’s executive director. “She is genuinely inspiring to me and I’m sure she will be to you as well.”
Tammy Baldwin represents Wisconsin’s 2nd District, and is the first woman to serve on Wisconsin’s congressional delegation. She was also the first non-incumbent, openly gay person to be elected to Congress. Her legislation has been consistently and fully inclusive of both sexual orientation and gender identity, including specific legislative efforts on LGBT health and aging issues.
In addition to honoring Rep. Baldwin, NCTE will also recognize members of the Hate Crimes Coalition, which was instrumental in passing, and now in implementing, the national hate crimes law. That law is the first piece of federal legislation to positively include gender identity. We will also be honoring the late Julie Johnson for her decades of positive leadership and generous support for transgender people and organizations, including NCTE. Her work, often behind the scenes, has made so much of our advocacy and so many advances possible.
