Democratic platform supports transgender employment rights

Transgender rights protestBY STEVE WILLIAMS

For the first time in the Democratic party’s history lawmakers have unequivocally included trans-inclusive nondiscrimination language in the party platform.

The platform language, obtained by Buzz Feed, builds on previous support, saying:

We know that putting America back to work is job one, and we are committed to ensuring Americans do not face employment discrimination. We support the Employment Non-Discrimination Act because people should not be fired based on their sexual orientation or gender identity.
