John will ensure that the Title IX ban on sex discrimination in education also protects LGBTQ students by passing the Student Non-Discrimination Act.
John will implement a federal ban on conversion therapy.
John will allow transgender individuals to serve in the military.
John will support the Voting Rights Advancement Act and oppose voter ID laws, which can be significant barriers to voting for people whose gender identity does not match their sex as assigned at birth.
