In May, we placed our client, transgender rights attorney, Jillian Weiss, on CNN three times. On May 5, she appeared on Legal View with Ashleigh Banfield to discuss the Justice Department’s challenge to North Carolina’s anti-transgender law. On May 9 she appeared on the same program to share insights on North Carolina’s decision to file a lawsuit over the Justice Department’s challenge.
A week later , Jillian appeared on the show again to talk about the Obama Administration’s “sweeping directive telling every public school district in the country to allow transgender students to use the bathrooms that match their gender identity.”
Through these national television news appearances, Weiss helped educate the American public about what’s at stake for transgender people in our nation and the importance of protecting them under the law.
We’re proud to work with Jillian, a true warrior for transgender rights.
