Ben & Jerry’s and the National Center for Transgender Equality have collaborated on a multi-state billboard campaign to support “transgender” children.
The billboards are targeting four states: Florida, Texas, Georgia, and Virginia — all of which have passed legislation to protect girls sports or try to prevent gender change treatments and surgeries for minors.
“In the wake of a recent spate of hateful, anti-trans legislation in states across the nation, Ben & Jerry’s has launched a billboard campaign to stand in solidarity with trans youth and their families who have been targeted by the latest wave of attempted new laws,” Ben & Jerry’s said in a press release obtained by The Gateway Pundit.
The message on the billboards, placed in each state’s capital, reads “We Stand with Trans Youth and Those Who Love Them” and “trans rights are human rights.”
“At a time when many politicians are criminalizing access to health care for trans youth — in addition to other efforts to marginalize them — we felt it important to make a public stand in support for them and their friends and families. We see them, we hear them, we stand with them,” said Maroni Minter, US Activism Manager for Ben & Jerry’s. “After years and years of progress in the LGBTQ+ and trans community, this wave of regressive legislation is trying to take us backwards not forward. In the face of this reality, it is more important than ever that we not remain silent.”
The press release added that “on top of the four states included in the campaign, 31 other states have seen legislative activity that seeks to marginalize the transgender community, most specifically designed to affect trans youth. Additionally, Ben & Jerry’s will also be placing a newspaper ad in their home state of Vermont. The state has been dealing with its own spate of anti-LGBTQ+ activity, including the recent murder of a trans woman, vandalism of a local LGBTQ+ community center, and hateful messages targeting local school staff for hosting workshops about gender equity.”
The ice cream company is notorious for their extreme far left activism.
