Legislative Lunch & Learn: Safe Schools
Transgender youth face unique obstacles to accessing an equal education in our commonwealth’s public schools, from being called the wrong name in class to having their restroom access restricted. After years of grassroots advocacy in school districts by community organizations and local families, Virginia will be the 17th state to have uniform guidelines for how public schools should treat transgender students to ensure everyone has an equal opportunity to learn and graduate. Join us to discuss what guidelines we can expect and how we got here! Speakers include Senator Jennifer Boysko, Delegate Marcus Simon, Claire Gastanaga the Executive Director of the ACLU of Virginia, Ted Lewis with Side by Side, Nicolle Campa with Metro DC PFLAG, and Shannon McKay with He She Ze and We.
