A Statement in Response to President Trump’s Ban on Transgender Americans Serving in the Armed Forces

Tri-Valley Cultural Jews condemns President Donald J. Trump’s proclamation, delivered yesterday via Twitter, that transgender Americans will no longer be allowed to serve in the United States armed forces in any capacity. It seems apparent that President Trump is aligning with conservative and bigoted interest groups and is targeting a group that he deems as less valued to him. At TVCJ, we stand with our LGBTQ community and are proud of our guiding principles:

  • We believe that everyone has the right to express themselves however they see fit in relation to race, gender, sexuality, age, religion, class, disability or any other form of social differentiation.

  • We believe that people have the right to define themselves and not have negative labels imposed upon them.
