School Success and Opportunity Act
This is a debugging block
An attempt by anti-trans activists in California to qualify for a referendum vote on the state's newly enacted law protecting transgender students has failed.
A transgender 16-year-old girl, Jewlyes, was attacked at her school in California in November. Now, the District Attorney is charging the young trans student with battery.
Even though California's transgender non-discrimination law, the School Success and Opportunity Act or AB1266, was signed into law last August, it still faces potential repeal. A coalition of anti-LGBT activist organizations collected hundreds of thousands of signatures to put the law up for a public vote in November.
Anti-transgender activists are already looking for students who want to trash talk their classmates in their quest to repeal protections for transgender students.
Tonight's episode of Glee on Fox included a storyline for transgender student Unique (Alex Newell) regarding access to restroom facilities at her public high school. All students deserve the same opportunities to be successful, and you can find resources and ways to help support trans youth now!
California's School Success and Opportunity Act is an important bill that would protect transgender students by ensuring that they can access school accommodations that affirm their gender identity, and can participate in the same sports teams and other school activities as their peers do.
