Demand protections for transgender students

The Trump Administration revoked the Obama guidelines that defend transgender children and teens by directing the Justice and Education Departments to notify schools to stop protecting transgender students' rights to use the bathroom that matches their gender identity. Transgender students are already at a higher risk for bullying, violence, and suicide compared to their cisgender peers, and this new order endangers them further.
