Working Group on Civil and Human Rights of Transgender and Non-Binary People
This working group was created at Annual Session in 2018, to implement the revised Minute on the Civil and Human Rights of Transgender and Non-Binary People.
The Working Group on Civil and Human Rights of Transgender and Non-Binary People was accepted by the Yearly Meeting at Annual Session 2018. The working group is jointly under the care of the Peace and Social Concerns Committee and the Advancement & Outreach Committee.

Context & Work
The committee maintains a website with resources.
For context, the Family Research Council has a 5-point plan for driving transgender people out of public life. This 5-point plan is part of an overall attempt to drive a wedge between the transgender community and the LGB portion of the LGBTQ+ community. The ultimate goal in separating these communities is to legally enshrine strict gender roles, rolling back advancements in women’s rights and gay and lesbian rights.
One of our first actions as a working group has been opposing the transgender military ban, a policy found in that 5-point plan.
