About this Event
Lawyer Susan Weaver focused her MRPL project on reviewing recent cases in which religiously-affiliated organizations sued to prevent the federal government from requiring them to provide health care services or coverage for gender-affirming health care for transgender people under the Affordable Care Act. These groups argue that doing so burdens their religious beliefs in violation of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act. In this webinar, she will present her review, reflect upon the implications of these cases, and highlight the underrepresented work of religious groups who support transgender people and their right to gender- affirming health care.
