Secular podcast discusses legislative assault on transgender people

Ep. 16 Square

This month on the only all-women secular podcast in the United States, three powerhouse attorneys discuss the history of legislative attacks on transgender people.

“We Dissent” hosts FFRF Legal Director Rebecca Markert, FFRF Attorney Liz Cavell and American Atheist Attorney Alison Gill have just released Episode 16 of the podcast. This month’s episode features special guest Sasha Buchert, the senior attorney and director of the Non-Binary and Transgender Rights Project for Lambda Legal. Buchert guides listeners through a discussion of the history of transgender rights in the courts, the current legislative attacks on trans people that are being seen across the country and the litigation to overturn anti-trans laws.

“We Dissent,” which first aired in April 2022, is the only women-helmed legal affairs show for atheists, agnostics and humanists, offering legal wisdom from the secular viewpoint of women lawyers. The show is a collaboration of the Freedom From Religion Foundation, American Humanist Association and American Atheists.

You can listen to previous episodes here, which examine developments affecting the separation of church and state in the U.S. Supreme Court and lower federal courts. Examples of issues discussed on past episodes include the 303 Creative v. Elenis case, elections and the variation of legislation from state to state.
