Over 300 national, state, and local anti-sexual assault  and domestic violence organizations oppose anti-transgender initiatives. These initiatives utilize and perpetuate the myth that protecting transgender people’s access to restrooms and locker rooms endangers the safety or privacy of others. As organizations that care about reducing assault and violence, these organizations favor laws and policies that protect transgender people from discrimination, including in accessing facilities that match the gender they live every day.
