Bills have been introduced in Olympia that would eliminate protections that allow transgender people to use restrooms and other facilities that match their gender identity. These protections have existed for ten years and are essential for transgender people to live and work safely in Washington.
These bills are part of a new wave of anti-LGBTQ legislation that is being pushed across the country. We can't allow them to pass in Washington.
That's why we've joined with our allies to form the Washington Safety & Access for Everyone (SAFE) Alliance to protect our anti-discrimination law from these attacks.
Please call or email your state legislators and ask them to preserve our state's anti-discrimination law by opposing HB 2589 and SB 6443.
- Email: Find your legislators using the District Finder tool, or use these lists: Representatives and Senators
- Phone: Call the Washington State Legislature Hotline at 1-800-562-6000
- If you need guidance, a script is available on the SAFE Alliance website
