Protecting Transgender Students in New York

Gay Jewish Senator Brad Hoylman wants to strengthen the Dignity For All Students Act to make sure – among other protections – that transgender students are allowed to use the bathroom and locker room of the gender with which they identify.

Senator Hoylman spoke about his need to codify and make it more difficult to take these protections away on TWC News. “It’s important to send a message during this time of uncertainty and fear for kids’ safety in our schools,” Hoylman said. “New York needs to be bold and upfront, saying that we will not accept the President’s undermining of transgender people’s civil rights in our schools.” Click on the image below to watch the segment.
