NYLPI joins amicus brief supporting transgender studentsMarch 19, 2019
The federal district court ruled on the right side of history, holding that discrimination against transgender students was sex discrimination and, thus, violated the law.
Amici urge the Court of Appeals to uphold the lower court decision and specifically highlights the legal point that federal protections against sex discrimination include protections for transgender students.
NYLPI’s Health Justice Program is proud to join our colleagues in supporting this important decision. Excluding transgender students from bathrooms that correspond with their gender identity can cause physical and emotional harm and impact their health and well-being.
