In the last week of February, the Trump administration Departments of Justice (DOJ) and Education (DOE) rescinded the previous Administration’s DOJ and DOE guidance regarding Title IX protections for trans children.

It was a major attack on dignity, fairness, and the right to a safe and equal education for transgender students, and PFLAG was solidly in the lead, speaking out not only on the injustice of the move, but on ways to combat it.

For those who may have missed one of the many eblasts or blog posts or press releases shared, here is a full run-down of the week’s communications on this important issue.

Remember: even though the guidance was rescinded, Title IX protections still exist; stay vigilant. Read the FAQ for detailed information.
