CALL Dept. of Justice and Dept. of Education: Don’t Harm Transgender Youth

The Trump administration is considering withdrawing existing guidance on federal law protecting transgender youth in schools. This guidance has been useful in helping schools meeting their obligations to protect all students from discrimination and harassment. Withdrawing it is dangerous and unnecessary, and would only demonstrate that this administration is hostile to transgender and gender non-conforming youth.

We urge our members to contact the Department of Justice at 202-514-2000 and tell them to leave the existing guidance protecting transgender youth in place. Then call the Department of Education at 1-800-872-5327, and tell them the same thing.

Together we can stop this administration from doing further harm to our community.
