Rachel, the mother of a transgender 5th grader testified in front of the Chicago aldermen about Trump’s “blatant discrimination” against those that identify with a gender other than the one they were assigned at birth.

“I’m 100 percent certain that my gender, your gender, and my child’s gender is for the person to decide,” Rachel said at the meeting on Nov. 28. 

The Chicago City Council’s Committee on Human Relations signed a resolution demanding Trump stop the passing of a policy that would redefine gender as male or female designated by a person’s genitals at birth, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.

“To render trans people to the identity assigned at birth strips such individuals, including myself, the dignity, humanity and inherent right to self-determine and self-identify,” Channyn Lynne Parker, a transgender activist with the Broadway Youth Center said.
