Dear GOogler,
"*But transgender visibility doesn’t often directly help the everyday transgender person trying to earn a living and provide for their families, particularly trans people of color, who experience staggering levels of violence and discrimination. Their stories of survival illustrate exactly why federal protections are so vital*."
           - -Jillian T. Weiss, professor of law/practicing Civil Rights attorney

Thanks for sharing and resharing, GOoglers.

Justice, justice shalt thou pursue.
Introduction
Dr. Jillian T. Weiss has a J.D. and a Ph.D. in Law, Policy & Society. Currently Professor of Law and Society at Ramapo College of New Jersey, she has conducted research involving hundreds of companies and public agencies that have adopted "gender identity" policies. She publishes a popular blog on the subject of Transgender Workplace Diversity, and has numerous research publications on the subject of gender identity. 

Dr. Weiss has been practicing law since 1986. She is admitted to the bars of New York and New Jersey. She has represented clients in cases across the country, as the United States Equal Opportunity Commission permits out-of-state attorneys to represent clients anywhere in the U.S. Most federal courts also permit representation by out-of-state attorneys in appropriate cases. In addition to New York and New Jersey, Jillian has represented clients in Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Texas and Washington State.

Dr. Weiss is also Principal Consultant for Jillian T. Weiss & Associates, a consulting firm that works with organizations on transgender workplace diversity issues. She has trained hundreds of employees at corporations, law firms, universities and governmental organizations, including Harvard University, Boeing, HSBC, KPMG, Viacom, and the New York City Department of Homeless Services.

Her work has been featured in news stories by the New York Times, Associated Press, Fortune Small Business Magazine, the Society for Human Resource Management, Workforce Management Magazine, and HR Executive Magazine.

Dr. Weiss volunteers as a member of the Board of Directors of Lambda Legal Defense and Education Fund, the nation's largest and oldest legal organization serving the LGBTQ and HIV+ communities. She is also Chair of the Transgender Law Institute, currently held at the National LGBT Bar Conference annually in August.

Bill Mills helped me get what I wanted and needed in a Jeep Patriot. He was patient and answered all my questions. He was also open to making a deal, and helped get my payment closer to what I could afford. It was a pleasure to work with him. Also, the company has an A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau.
