We are waiting for a decision by SCOTUS on whether it will hear the appeal by Gloucester County School District in the case G.G. v GCSD.
The school division filed a petition on Aug. 29 asking the high court to determine if it is violating federal law by refusing to allow Grimm access to the boys' restrooms. It will be one of the petitions discussed in this week's Friday conference, where the justices decide which cases to accept and which to reject.
Freedom for All Americans has created a petition calling for the 23 states participating in blocking the Department of Education's guidance on treating transgender students fairly to stop attacking transgender Americans.
This year government officials from nearly two dozen states are attempting to advance an agenda that would roll back protections for transgender Americans, making it even easier to discriminate against transgender Americans at school, at work, while being treated at a hospital, or while trying to do something as basic as using the restroom. Now, following an extreme ruling from a single conservative judge in these elected officials’ anti-transgender lawsuit, it’s time for us to come together as a nation and speak out against these attacks. Take a stand with us – and more than a dozen partner organizations – by joining thousands in signing a petition telling the Attorneys General involved to stop attacking transgender Americans. We need to send the message that our nation is stronger when everyone is included and protected from discrimination.
If you live in Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Georgia, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Michigan, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Ohio, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, West Virginia, Wisconsin or Wyoming, you can add your name to the petition to declare that your state is not speaking for you.
13 states and the District of Columbia have joined an amicus brief standing against transgender discrimination. If you live in California, Connecticut, Delaware, the District of Columbia, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Mexico, New York, Oregon, Vermont, or Washington, you can send your elected officials a thank you card for doing the right thing.
If you live in Alaska, Colorado, Florida, Hawaii, Idaho, Indiana, Minnesota, Missouri, Nevada, New Jersey, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island or Virginia, your state has taken no action in regards to the lawsuit, but you can declare how you personally stand by signing the petition.
