The following statement can be attributed to the All In For Equality coalition:

"We are deeply disturbed by and closely monitoring what has happened at the Texas Capitol. We witnessed violence and arrests today against Texans, many of whom are queer and transgender and who would be harmed directly by this bill.

Hundreds of people came to the Capitol to express their concerns about a bill that would ban life-saving healthcare for transgender youth. That bill was halted today based on a procedural point of order, but Texas lawmakers are still threatening to advance it.

We urge them to show compassion to transgender youth and will hold them to account to protect the freedoms of all Texans."
