I just want to communicate and celebrate that in this pride month, today, our trans brothers and sisters in Argentina have won a great battle.
Equitable access to formal employment in the public administration is law. According to what was voted today, the State must destinate at least 1 percent of the public administration staff employs (in all the regular contracting modalities) to transvestite, trans and transgender people.
This is a huge step in breaking down the barrier that prevents trans people from accessing formal employment and living wages.
The law is named after two great trans activists of Argentina: Diana Sacayan and Lohana Berkins and was voted almost in unanimity.

ARGENTINA JUST MADE HISTORY.
The first protest for legal abortion in democracy in Argentina was on March 7, 1984. 36 years later, December 30, 2020 at 04:13 am, abortion is now officially legal, safe and free for all women. Women have fought for so long to obtain rights of this kind. This is a HUGE step for us, what an amazing day. EL ABORTO ES LEGAL 💚
