Some presidential candidates are making trans rights a 2020 campaign issue

A handful of presidential candidates say the needs of transgender Americans deserve more attention, and they’re making them an issue on the 2020 campaign trail.

Three candidates for the Democratic nomination spoke at length recently with the National Center for Transgender Equality Action Fund about how their policies on health care, education, and justice would affect transgender people. The action fund provided a transcript of a forum called Transform the White House.
