Letter to Ben Carson to Protect Women in Shelters

Family Action of Tennessee, FACT’s legislative arm, along with 39 other leaders has signed a Hands Across the Aisle Coalition letter asking Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Secretary Ben Carson to rescind and revise a “gender identity rule” adopted by the Obama administration that allows men who identify as women to use women’s facilities and women who identify as men to use men’s facilities at government-run shelters.

Given that these shelters are to protect women fleeing domestic violence, the gender identity rule forces a vulnerable population to share accommodations with those of the very sex that violated them.
