Episode Info

Episode Info:

More than one in four transgender people have lost a job due to bias, and more than three-fourths have experienced some form of workplace discrimination. Refusal to hire, privacy violations, harassment, and even physical and sexual violence on the job are common occurrences, and are experienced at even higher rates by transgender people of color. Our client Judi Brown, an African-American transgender woman, was fired from national convenience store chain Circle K after she complained about the harassment and discrimination she experienced. Judi joins us to discuss her experience - we also speak with her lawyer, ACLU of Illinois Staff Attorney Carolyn Wald, about the many challenges facing transgender employees in our state and across the country.
