GLSEN and the Movement Advancement Project (MAP), in partnership with National Center for Transgender Equality (NCTE) and the National Education Association (NEA), recently released a new research report, Separation and Stigma: Transgender Students & School Facilities, showing just how dangerous and harmful it can be to exclude transgender children from school facilities that match who they are.
We need you to sign on to our open letter to Secretary DeVos, co-signed by GLSEN, MAP, NCTE, and NEA, demanding that she read this new research to understand the realities facing trans students – and that she work NOW to ensure trans students are included in our schools.
When Secretary DeVos was confirmed as Education Secretary, she promised to work with schools to create environments that were “free from harm.” However, she recently rolled back the Title IX guidance that protected trans students from discrimination.
Secretary DeVos needs to read the facts. Sign on to our open letter to get this research in her hands right now.
