Lt. Governor’s Statement on Trump Administration Withdrawing Protections for Transgender Students
 

“The Trump Administration’s decision to remove protections for transgender students places some of our most vulnerable children at increased risk of discrimination and violence. My office will continue working to ensure Washington is a safe place for all, especially for those whose rights are in jeopardy.

I encourage transgender students or their families to reach out to my office for help or support at this difficult time.”

—Lt. Governor Cyrus Habib
