12/11/17 – MRFF’s Statement on Today’s Court Ruling Allowing Transgenders to Enlist in the U.S. Military

MRFF commends U.S District Court Judge for the District of Columbia, Colleen Kollar-Kotelly, for wielding the Constitutional powers of check and balance to deny the Trump administration’s attempt to further trample transgender rights in the U.S military.  January 1st, the Pentagon will begin accepting transgender recruits. MRFF currently represents 12 Transgender servicemembers/veterans and while MRFF maintains we have an arduous road ahead of us, this small victory supports the future’s next steps towards equality. Kollar-Kotelly’s actions, her noble adherence to the Constitution, is something sorely missing from our Commander in Chief, and from people of the same ilk as the bigoted, Christian-supremacist USAF Chaplain Sonny Hernandez (currently under official Inspector General investigation by Pentagon officials pursuant to MRFF complaints), who has publicly voiced the notion that there’s “no such thing as Transgenderism.”  MRFF stands behind the Constitution, and we will continue to back each and everyone who earnestly does the same.  At the same time, as we did earlier this year with Hernandez, we will continue our fight for separation of Church and State by exposing those in the military spewing Fundamentalist religious hatred and by protecting our clients be they LGBTQ, Atheist, religious or non-religious.
