We've just gotten word from the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia that the ACLU has won our case on behalf of Diane Schroer, a retired Army Colonel who was offered a job as a terrorism research analyst at the Library of Congress, only to have the offer rescinded when she told her future supervisor that she was in the process of gender transition. You can read the decision here.
Diane Schroer served her country with great honor and selflessness for 25 years, and wanted only to continue that with the job at the Library of Congress. She has been a hero to many people for many years for many different reasons. Today, she's an even bigger hero to all of us.
