“I Will Not Be Erased” Rally in New London

A rally will take place at the Soldiers and Sailors Monument in New London on Sunday, November 4 at 2 pm to protest the Trump Administration’s proposed federal legal definition of gender under Title IX Civil Rights laws that will eliminate protections currently in place for sexual minorities.  This will greatly impact the LGBTQQI community, particularly transgender, removing protections that prevent discrimination in housing, education, health care and other arenas.  The Department of Health and Human Services is spearheading the effort to establish a binary legal definition that assigns sexual identity as either male or female, disregarding what is widely seen in the medical establishment as a spectrum of identities and orientations.
