Advocacy for Trans-Inclusive Policies
The university recently clarified its unwritten procedure regarding the usage of all gender-specific facilities. The standard for all gender-specific facilities is now the sex listed on a student's birth certificate. Instead of using the bathroom they are comfortable using, transgender students must use the bathroom that matches their natal sex, putting them at increased risk of violence and harassment.
This change is extremely regressive, as well as unsafe, and we encourage you to join us in writing administrators to express your concerns and urge them to reconsider this harmful change.
