Sen. Spearman On Protections For Trans People

Listen
AIR DATE: April 2, 2013

The Nevada Senate voted overwhelmingly to add gender expression to the list of traits covered by the hate crimes bill.

Patricia Spearman, the sponsor for the bill, tells us why the transgender community needs this protection.

Sen. Patricia Spearman, Democrat, North Las Vegas
