Following President Trump’s announcement of banning transgender Americans from military service on July 26, 2017, President Rich Gulla released the following statement.
SEA/SEIU Local 1984 condemns the remarks made by President Trump this morning. Anyone who signs up to risk their life for their country should be respected, not discriminated against. Policy based on bigotry has no place in 2017 – and we stand in solidarity with transgender Americans both here in New Hampshire and across the county.
