In 2016, more than 50 bills were introduced in Congress targeting trans people. Since Trump took office, dozens of pieces of landmark legislation have been cancelled, severely rolling back trans rights. To explore this wide-ranging assault, Abby Martin speaks with two leading voices and activists in the trans community: Chase Strangio, attorney with the American Civil Liberties Union, and Jennicet Gutiérrez, founding member of La Familia: Trans Queer Liberation Movement.
