"New Orleans will continue to love and accept ALL"
NEW ORLEANS - Council President Helena Moreno has responded to efforts to remove peaceful protestors from the Louisiana House Chamber during the veto override session of Senate Bill 156, which bans transgender athletes from competing on school sports teams with their identified gender and allows people 21 and older to carry a concealed handgun without a permit or safety training.
“As a former legislator, I have seen many protesters in the House Chamber and never seen any removed like this. I view this as a physical manifestation of what some legislators are doing to the transgender community. It’s horrific and sad.” Moreno stated.
