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 canceled, severely rolling back Trans rights.

Abby Martin chronicles this hidden war on Trans people, and interviews two leaders in the Trans liberation movement: Jennicet Gutiérrez, founder of “La Familia” who famously interrupted President Obama to demand rights for Transgender immigrants in ICE detention; and Chase Strangio, Trans rights attorney with American Civil Liberties Union.
