I wanted to give you a quick update on a post I wrote a few weeks ago about a group of high school girls from a local swim team.
While using the university rec center in our town, they encountered a transgendered man as they exited the showers.
We are seeing a group of concerned individuals coming forward in our community to address this issue of transgendered individuals and privacy laws. We do not have any changes yet but will keep you posted.
As we are working here locally, we are encouraged to see our friends in California have made some progress in demonstrating that parents are concerned!
For more information, see this article about the Privacy For All Students (PFAS) coalition, which has submitted over 620,000 signatures, qualifying them for a referendum on California's co-ed bathroom law.
