Alabama's 2022 Legislative Session ended on Thursday, April 7. Unfortunately, last week, state lawmakers succeeded in pushing through extremely harmful anti-transgender youth legislation. This determination to focus on attacking Alabama youth in the final hours, rather than passing legislation that would benefit our state, speaks to how this overall 2022 session went.

Alabama lawmakers neglected bills that would address the state's prison and parole crises, expand voter access, and improve pregnant workers' rights. They instead favored bills that presented cruel "solutions" to non-existent problems.

Read about the final outcomes of bills that we opposed or supported.


  • Senate Bill 184 - PASSED ✔️
  • House Bill 322 - PASSED ✔️
    • This bill discriminates against transgender youth by banning them from using restrooms that align with their gender identity in public K-12 schools. It also invokes legislation like Florida's controversial 'Don't Say Gay' bill by banning classroom instruction or discussion of gender identity in public elementary schools.
  • House Bill 194 - PASSED ✔️
    • This bill makes it a crime for local voter education organizations to provide funds for programming or to collaborate with their local election offices on any type of voter outreach.
  • House Bill 2/Senate Bill 3 - FAILED ❌
    • This bill would create new criminal penalties that would threaten and restrict an individual's right to protest lawfully.
  • House Bill 295 - FAILED ❌
    • This bill would ban abortion at six (6) weeks of pregnancy and allow individuals to act as bounty hunters to enforce this ban.


  • Senate Bill 6 - FAILED ❌
    • This bill would reform Alabama's current voter rights restoration guidelines and eligibility. It would also allow an individual to have their voting rights restored if they are in compliance with either an approved payment plan or an approved community service plan for fines, court costs, and feed.
  • House Bill 57/Senate Bill 215 - FAILED ❌
    • This bill would provide legislative oversight of the Alabama Board of Pardons and Paroles by allowing legislators to adopt a validated risk and needs assessment. It would also require the Board of Pardons and Paroles to use the parole guidelines in its decisions or state in writing when it deviates.
  • House Bill 56 - FAILED ❌
    • This bill would repeal Alabama's Habitual Felony Offender Act.
  • House Bill 1 - FAILED ❌
    • This bill would pass Alabama's Pregnant Workers' Fairness Act.

It is noticeable that bills strengthening Alabamians’ civil rights and liberties failed, while restrictive and unconstitutional bills were passed. This speaks to a constant issue with our state lawmakers hindering Alabama’s progress as years pass by.

Now, as we prepare to litigate against SB 184, we want transgender youth in Alabama and their families to know there are still resources and support available for you. Check out and support these local organizations that provide direct services for Alabama’s trans communities.

Although Governor Kay Ivey signed SB 184 this past Friday, please know that this does not go into effect for 30 days. Today, gender-affirming care is still available in Alabama, and we will fight to make sure it stays that way for ALL.
