Log Cabin Republicans Submits Letter On Transgender Student Protections

Date:

Washington, D.C. — Log Cabin Republicans has submitted a letter to Secretary Betsy DeVos and Attorney General Jeff Sessions at the Department of Education and the Department of Justice, respectively, outlining suggestions on guidance to protect transgender students following their joint decision to rescind preexisting guidance issued under the Obama Administration. The Log Cabin Republicans letter was sent in advance of a more comprehensive report on the matter to follow in the coming weeks.

“Last week while liberals were howling at the heavens, Log Cabin Republicans had our heads down working to develop common-sense conservative solutions to protect transgender students,” Log Cabin Republicans President Gregory T. Angelo stated. “Not only is the Log Cabin Republicans response to this issue coming from the center-right, it’s coming directly from our transgender members — in other words, the people who understand this issue the most.”

The letter was drafted and signed by transgender members of Log Cabin Republicans Jordan Evans, Gina Roberts, Piper Laurie Smith, and Jennifer Williams, as well as the Republican parent of a transgender student, Crystal Dawn Hasinsky.
