Transgender Students and Sex-Separated Facilities

1h 2m

Created on June 23, 2017

Intermediate

Overview

Across the country, courts have held that schools may not discriminate against boys and girls who are transgender by barring them from using the same restrooms that other boys and girls use. Earlier this year, the Supreme Court decided not to review one of these cases, Gloucester County School Board v. G.G. ("G.G."). As a result, these cases will undoubtedly continue to percolate through the courts in 2017 and 2018.

Join ACLU attorney Joshua Block, who represents the student in G.G. He will discuss the arguments made in G.G., focusing on the plaintiff's perspective. Additionally, he will also provide an overview of the current legal landscape overall, how we got to this point, and what lies ahead.

Learning Objectives: 

  1. Understand the legal protections for transgender people under Title IX and other statutes that prohibit sex discrimination
  2. Discuss the impact of restroom exclusions and the consequences for transgender students
  3. Identify key "cases to watch" currently pending in the federal courts
