ACLU OF PA DROPS SUPPORT FOR HOUSE PROBATION REFORM BILL
In response to a vote today in the state House Judiciary Committee, the American Civil Liberties Union of Pennsylvania announced that it has dropped its support for legislation to reform the commonwealth’s probation system.
The ACLU-PA has recognized the dire need for more education and advocacy around transgender rights, especially given the lack of non-discrimination protections here in the commonwealth of Pennsylvania. TEAP aims to pave the way for the passage of statewide, comprehensive non-discrimination protections, which is a top priority for the ACLU of Pennsylvania and an issue we have worked on for more than a decade. We are committed to supporting and building the leadership of directly impacted transgender communities in this process. Together, ACLU-PA and transgender Pennsylvanians will engage in public education, strategic communications and direct advocacy and lobbying to create a more favorable climate for trans-friendly policy outcomes in the state.
