I strongly support the passage of this bill. Protect our trans youth.
I strongly support the passage of this bill. Anything less than equal protections for all students is unconscionable. Treating trans people with respect and dignity saves lives. Discriminating against them leads to poor mental, physical and emotional health outcomes and in many cases leads to suicide or self-harm. It also sends a message that violence against trans people is deemed acceptable by our schools and by our government. Do the right thing and protect your constituents. Put it in writing and demand justice for our most vulnerable populations. Nondiscrimination legislation shouldn't be a partisan issue.
