"No one should fear being jobless, homeless and going hungry because of discrimination. Without legal protections, transgender people are left particularly vulnerable to bias. We commend lawmakers for ensuring that all Nevadans, regardless of gender identity or expression, are protected from such discrimination. The startling statistics and personal stories found in our national survey on transgender discrimination show just how critically necessary these protections are. We congratulate the Progressive Leadership Alliance of Nevada and transgender rights advocates for their hard work and leadership on this critical issue."

-- Task Force Executive Director Rea Carey on the passage of two transgender nondiscrimination bills by the Nevada General Assembly
