On August 10, 2023, the National Women’s Law Center (NWLC) co-led an amicus brief to the Sixth Circuit, alongside GLBTQ Legal Advocates & Defenders (GLAD) and twelve additional organizations and law firm counsel Jenner & Block, in the consolidated appeals L.W. v. Skrmetti and Doe v. Thornbury. We filed our brief in support of transgender young people, and their parents and doctors, who have challenged new laws in Tennessee and Kentucky, respectively, that aim to block access to medically necessary gender-affirming health care. Our brief urges the appeals court to find these bans unlawfully discriminate based on sex by singling out transgender youth.
