MLA Condemns North Carolina Law

June 2, 2016

"Such forms of legislation risk placing in danger a highly vulnerable population that is already subject to increasing violence. The MLA supports the condemnation of this bill by the Attorney General Loretta Lynch. It supports policies and pedagogy in educational institutions that respect the human dignity of the transgender community," says the MLA statement.
