Log Cabin Republicans Beg DeVos And Sessions To Reinstate Obama’s Protections For Trans Students

The Log Cabin Republicans have published an open letter to Betsy DeVos and Jeff Sessions. An excerpt:

Secretary DeVos and Attorney General Sessions, As transgender members of the Log Cabin Republicans and Republican parents of transgender students, we have deep concerns about your decision to rescind the May 13, 2016 directive entitled “Dear Colleague Letter on Transgender Students” pertaining to Compliance with Title IX and K–12 transgender children’s access to school facilities. As an organization, Log Cabin Republicans is proud to help play a part in the President Trump’s goal to “Make America Great Again.”

To this end, we request that the Trump Administration and the Department of Justice’s Civil Rights Division and Department of Education’s Office of Civil Rights reconsider rescinding the “Dear Colleague Letter on Transgender Students” and instead improve upon the directive itself. In the coming weeks, Log Cabin Republicans will provide the Departments Justice and Education with our recommendations in this regard, focusing on effective, common-sense conservative solutions designed to provide safety and respect to transgender students.
