Trans Rights are Civil Rights: Meet Sarah McBride, Rising Political Star & LGBTQ Activist

There is currently an assault on transgender civil rights. Recently, the federal civil rights law has been reinterpreted to erase protections for the transgender community.

As it says in the Torah, each person is created in the image of God.  It is holy to be your authentic self.  In affirming this ultimate spiritual truth, we must stand with, and for, the LGBTQ community. Sarah will be signing her book, Tomorrow will be Different, Love, Loss and the Fight for Trans Equality. Light refreshments will be provided.
