STATEMENT: Rep. Ro Khanna on Transgender Students Bathroom Protections

February 23, 2017
Press Release

 Washington, DC – Rep. Ro Khanna (CA-17) released the following statement on the Trump Administration rescinding guidance on how Title IX protects transgender students from discrimination.

“We cannot compromise on equal rights for LGBT individuals, but that's exactly what the Trump Admiration is doing. While Title IX protection for transgender students has not changed, this action by the Trump administration sends a terrible message to some of the most vulnerable young people. Students must be treated fairly and equally under the law, and protecting transgender students helps ensure that they have the same opportunity as their classmates to fully participate in school.”
