Obama Rule Revoked

Obama Rule Revoked

President Trump has revoked a controversial Obama administration policy requiring schools to grant access to lawfully sex-segregated areas on the basis of gender identity under Title IX. The policy had already resulted in lawsuits by 13 states and several school districts, and had been halted by our court system.

What does this mean for our Keep MA Safe Ballot question?

President Trump's order simply restores local school districts and states ability to make decisions about school bathrooms.

It does not impact our Massachusetts state law that requires public bathrooms, locker rooms, changing areas, and other private spaces to be open to anyone based on his or her chose gender identity. We still need to work hard and repeal that law in 2018.
