Cathedral City LGBTQ Veterans Memorial Made Official in 2019

(SACRAMENTO, CA) – Assemblymember Eduardo Garcia (D- Coachella) adamantly opposes the recent Supreme Court ruling allowing the implementation of discriminatory policies against transgender individuals in the military. Garcia notes the stark contrast between the regressive direction of the Federal Government and California’s inclusive values.


“Discrimination in any form is intolerable; it is most especially unconscionable when directed toward our U.S. military, our heroic service members, or prospective service members. This unjust Supreme Court ruling follows in stark contrast to California, where we just celebrated our newly designated LGBTQ Veterans Memorial; a historic milestone for inclusion,” said Garcia.
