Trans Family Child Separation

Episode Description

Republicans in Texas and Florida are pursuing a devastating new line of attack against trans youth: separating them from their supportive parents. This week, Imara discusses the politics and consequences of these family separation efforts with two people working on the frontlines. First, she’s joined by former Texas Child Protective Services employee Morgan Hardee Davis, who shares his harrowing experience of being forced to investigate loving, trans-affirming families, and his decision to resign in protest. Next, Imara talks with the Director of the Transgender Rights Initiative at Southern Legal Counsel, Simone Chriss, about the state of Florida’s attempt to manipulate custody rules to provide a safe haven for transphobic parents.
