Action Alert - Transgender Students - 2/23/17
Trump revoked federal guidelines specifying that transgender students have the right to use public school restrooms that match their gender identity.
> Please call Senator Schumer and thank him for making the following statement:
> “Equal rights and equal protection under the law are not issues that should be left up to the states, they ought to be guaranteed for every American, including all students. The federal government has an obligation to protect the rights of every citizen, and shirking that responsibility allows states to step in and discriminate. This decision by the Trump administration to roll back protections for transgender students is just plain wrong and cuts directly across the American drive and yearning for equality.”
Sen. Schumer: DC Office: (202) 224-6542 & LI Office: (631) 753-0978
> Please call Senator Gillibrand and ask her to issue a public statement condemning this human rights violation.
DC Office: (202) 224-4451 & LI Office: (631) 249-2825
> Please call Rep. King and ask him to publicly condemn this move.
DC Office: (202) 225-7896 & LI Office: (516) 541-4225
>This is a human rights violation that gravely harms transgender children. Comparing transgender people to sexual predators is egregious, especially from our proud sexual predator president.
