OneGoal Statement on Transgender Student Bathroom Complaints

Chicago IL (Feb. 14, 2018) – At OneGoal, we believe in the humanity of all students — regardless of race, religion, gender and sexual orientation, which is why we do not condone the Education Department’s rejection of complaints filed by transgender students who are banned from restrooms that match their gender identity.

According to the Education Department, “restroom complaints from transgender students are not covered by a 1972 civil rights law called Title IX.” We respectfully disagree. Schools are meant to be safe and empowering spaces. When students feel threatened or unwelcome, they are unable to strive and thrive as their very identity is being devalued and discouraged. This is the definition of a civil rights issue.

As violence against transgender people continues to rise, it is important that we support, protect and respect the rights of transgender students everywhere. And we are committed to standing in solidarity with transgender students and fighting for their rights as human beings.
