Fighting Transgender Discrimination in Hawaii

The ACLU of Hawaii champions the rights of Hawaii’s transgender people to live their lives freely and with respect.  We fight for protections against discrimination in employment, housing, public accommodations (including schools) and health care.  We also challenge barriers to transgender parents seeking continuing relationships with their children as well as obstacles to people obtaining government identity documents respectful of their gender identity (click here for information on how to correct the sex designation on your Hawaii government-issued IDs).

If you’ve faced discrimination on the basis of your gender identity or expression, the ACLU would like to hear from you!  We especially want to hear from you if you have encountered discrimination in these kinds of situations:

  • Public or private employment, housing, or public accommodations (for example, employers, rental agencies, hotels, apartment brokers, stores, or restaurants);
  • Public or private sex-segregated facilities (for example, bathrooms, locker rooms, changing rooms, rehab, homeless shelters, nursing homes, schools and/or school-related activities, dorms);
  • Custody and visitation of your children.
