Sign-on Comments from LGBTQ Orgs to USDA re SNAP

The ACLU joined this set of comments from LGBTQ and allied organizations to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, in response to an advanced notice of proposed rulemaking on the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). The express opposition to any regulatory or statutory changes, such as denying benefits to unemployed adults, that would further limit who may benefit from the SNAP program. The comments explain how such a change would disproportionately harm LGBTQ people, particularly those who are women, trans and gender nonconforming, and people of color.
