History in the House!

This Thursday, history will be made as the House of Representatives holds its first-ever hearing on issues facing transgender Americans in the workplace. The hearing, An Examination of Discrimination Against Transgender Americans in the Workplace, is scheduled for Thursday at 10:30 am. Congressman Rob Andrews (D-NJ), Chairman of the Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions (HELP) subcommittee of the Committee on Education and Labor, called for the hearing to educate lawmakers about the challenges the transgender community faces in the workplace.

PFLAG will be providing coverage of Thursday's hearing here at the PFLAG National Blog.

Rhodes Perry, our field & policy manager, will be attending the hearing, and reporting to PFLAG supporters about who testifies; what topics are discussed; and what lawmakers have to say about these important issues.
Be sure to come back and visit the PFLAG National Blog on Thursday, and join the conversation as the House makes history!
