Tele-Townhall: the Future of Equality for Transgender Students

01 March 2017 Published in Newsroom

On February 28, Equality Utah hosted a panel of guests to discuss transgender issues around the topic of student bathroom access, the Gavin Grimm case and much more. President Trump has approved the reversal of an Obama administration order that allowed transgender students to use the restroom of their gender identity.  We had panelists Danielle Hawkes of the Salt Lake Lawyers, Candice Metzler of TEA of Utah, Susan Reimers of the Utah Pride Center, and John Mejia of ACLU of Utah weigh in on their thoughts and opinions on the topics at hand, and they answered questions from our members on the call. What implications does this have for our students? Where do we go from here?
