On September 16th, the Virginia Department of Education proposed a new 2022 model policy regarding the treatment of transgender and nonbinary youth in public schools. These new guidelines are discriminatory and dangerous and would increase the risk of harm that trans students face. Since the public comment period opened on September 26th, there have been over 55,000 public comments on the VDOE’s anti-trans proposed model policy - and many of them are in opposition! Let’s keep up the momentum.
Hamkae Center and Equality Virginia are collaborating to host a 2022 Model Policy Public Comment Training on October 12th from 5:00-6:00 PM. In this training, we will answer questions and provide further assistance around writing a public comment against the new guidance. We hope to see you there!
