Just yesterday, you heard from us about the groundbreaking settlement announced by the U.S. Department of Justice and the U.S. Department of Education in our case to win equal access and protections for young transgender people. Last night, The New York Times published an editorial celebrating this agreement, calling on every school district in America to adopt the guidelines announced in this agreement. The editorial is a clarion call, and a vindication of our important work. I am truly honored to share it with you. I know that our work makes a difference in the lives of LGBT youth, but this agreement, and the support of the New York Times in spreading the word about the importance of protecting transgender kids, will save lives. Thank you for making all of this possible.
