Washington v. New Hope Ministries, Inc.(USA)

The D.C. Trans Coalition has filed the lawsuit on behalf of Lakiesha Washington against New Hope Ministries, Inc. of Woodbridge, Va., which owns and operates the John L. Young Women’s Shelter, claiming that the shelter for homeless women located three blocks from the U.S. Capitol is violating the D.C. Human Rights Act by refusing to admit transgender women unless they provide “documentation” of a legal name change or sex reassignment surgery.

  1. I support New Hope Ministries, Inc. by donating clothing, travel soaps/shampoos/lotion, toys for the children and so on. I hop that they adhere to their present policy regarding transgenders because if they don’t it will take precious resources away from born women, who have precious little resources as it is.
