D211 Transgender Discrimination
After a transgender student filed a complaint with the Board of Education Office of Civil Rights, high school district 211 has refused to allow a transgender student to change in the locker room of her gender identity. Superintendent Dan Cate's official statement can be found here https://adc.d211.org/wp-content/uploads/2012/12/Su...This decision affects not one, but many transgender youths throughout the district. While this decision is both oppressive and demeaning, it could also cost the school district 6 million dollars in funding. Signing this petition will show your support for the transgender students of district 211 and will show Dan Cates that there is public opposition to the board's ruling on this matter. This petition will be sent to Dan cates after reaching a suitable amount of signatures.
