We See You. We Stand With You.

Today Attorney General Loretta Lynch announced legal action against the state of North Carolina for HB2 as a violation of the Civil Rights Act.

From her statement::

Let me also speak directly to the transgender community itself ...
No matter how isolated,
and alone
you feel today,
know this:

The Department of Justice
and the entire Obama
administration want you to know 

We see you;
We stand with you
We will do everything we can to protect you going forward.

Please know that history is on your side.
This country was founded on the promise
of equal rights for all
and we have always managed
to move closer to that idea,
little by little, day by day.

It may not be easy, but we will get there."

-- US Attorney General Loretta Lynch

That not only will preach. It should.
