On June 24, 2020 Mayor Sylvester Turner announced the creation of a 45-person "Police Reform Task Force" that was to be slated with the mission of offering recommendations to the administration to reform how the Houston Police Department does its work. Read our full statement here.
Transform Houston was shocked to discover that Pastor Max Miller, a well known anti-LGBTQ activist, was included on that task force.
Pastor Miller's dangerous anti-transgender rhetoric around the Houston Equal Rights ordinance endangered the safety and lives of Houston's transgender and non-binary community and caused chaos and confusion around the purpose of our city's equal rights law.
Since that time Pastor Miller has never publicly apologized to Houston's LGBTQ community or made public statements countering his hateful rhetoric against transgender Houstonians.
