Officials with the Trump administration have declined to meet with members of the Congressional Transgender Equality Task Force to discuss perceived rollbacks to transgender rights.
The Washington Blade reported officials from the civil rights offices with the Department of Justice and the Department of Homeland Security have turned down the request to confer on transgender matters.
The request was sent via a letter dated 13 February from Massachusetts Rep. Joseph P. Kennedy III (grandson of the late Sen. Robert F. Kennedy), who serves as chair of the Congressional Transgender Equality Task Force.
