Michigan #StandWithTrans Capitol Rally!


RALLY UPDATE: On March 28, a 17-year-old Virginia boy named Gavin Grimm, represented by the ACLU, was set to ask the U.S. Supreme Court to recognize his right to an education free from sex discrimination, including the right to use a bathroom that aligns with his gender identity. Unfortunately, as a direct result of the Trump administration's decision to rescind federal guidance on the rights of transgender students at school, the U.S. Supreme Court remanded Gavin Grimm’s case to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit. Despite the fact that the Supreme Court will not be hearing Gavin’s case in March, THE RALLY IS STILL ON. It's more important than ever that we stand together and fight for comprehensive nondiscrimination protection at the local, state, and federal level.

If you #StandWithTrans in support of laws that bar discrimination based on gender identity and expression . . .

If you want to #ShowUp4TransYouth and stand against the Trump administration’s attack on the rights of trans students at school . . .

And, yes, if you #StandWithGavin as he continues to fight for all trans students through the federal courts . . .

Join us at 10:00am on Tuesday, March 28 at the Michigan State Capitol steps.
