Strongly Support Trans Youth
Bigotry, discrimination, bullying, and transphobia have no place in Virginia schools. This guidance document change simply affords to all students the agency provided all others. Virginia must comply with nondiscrimination laws. All students ARE entitled to a safe and supportive learning environment free from discrimination and harassment for all students. There can be no question that these are fundamental rights of all people.
I strongly urge Virginia to adopt the guidance document change and fully embrace non-discriminatory, inclusive, guidance and access to public education for all Virginia students.
