Time Marches Forward and So Do We

This new animation is released by the ACLU, drawn by Molly and directed by the wonderful and talented Kim Boekbinder and Jim Batt. Narrated by Emmy award winning actress Laverne Cox.

Only 18 states explicitly and comprehensively protect trans people from discrimination. Many other state lawmakers are focused on targeting us for more discrimination.
