Salt Lake City Issues Statement on H.B. 257

SALT LAKE CITY, January 22, 2024 – Salt Lake City strongly opposes H.B. 257. This bill sends a hostile and demeaning message to transgender and non-binary Utahns and creates greater division in our community by compromising the safety and dignity of certain groups of people over others. This bill contradicts our commitment to being a safe and caring place for all and undermines our State’s ambition to welcome the world and all of its diversity.

We love and support the transgender community throughout Utah and will do all we can to continue to make Salt Lake City a bastion of safety and inclusion.
