Over the past year, MAP and a number of its colleague lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) organizations have produced videos and TV ads that incorporate key approaches for talking effectively about nondiscrimination protections, what it means to be transgender, the harms of anti-transgender bathroom ban laws, and much more.
Below are links to a selection of those videos developed by, among others, MAP, the Equality Texas Foundation, Freedom for All Americans, American Unity Fund, Equality North Carolina, and the Transform California campaign. Additional videos will be posted here over the coming months.
