Judaism could see a major change in accepting transgender people

Judaism could see a major change when it comes to accepting people who are transgender.
The "Reform Jewish Movement" is expected to vote on a ground breaking resolution in Orlando Thursday.
1.5 million members from the group  will vote on a resolution to allow equality for all including transgender into their congregations.
It's the most far-reaching resolution on transgender rights of any major religious organization. 
The resolution calls for gender-neutral bathrooms, gender-neutral language in all houses of worship and training on gender issues for all staff members at their schools and in a major show of support for the group's efforts. 
The White House is even getting involved. 
Vice President Joe Biden will be traveling to Orlando on Saturday to address the group and talk about their all-inclusive proposal.
Ahead of Biden's arrival, a spokesperson for the group says other religious leaders here in the U.S. have promoted pro-transgender resolutions, but this is the largest ever.
The group's 5-day conference will wrap up on Sunday.
