Attorney General Sessions Issues Memo Stating Civil Rights Protections Against Sex Discrimination Do Not Include Gender Identity, “Including Transgender Status”
“In a memo to all federal prosecutors and obtained by CNN, Sessions states that ‘Title VII’s prohibition on sex discrimination encompasses discrimination between men and women but does not encompass discrimination based on gender identity per se, including transgender status.'”
Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 “prohibits employment discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex and national origin.”
The Trump Administration also revoked protections for transgender students regarding bathrooms.
