WASHINGTON STATE

HOUSE DEMOCRATS

Statement from Rep. Nicole Macri in response to White House decision to allow discrimination against transgender students

“Today Donald Trump turned a blind eye to illegal discrimination that threatens transgender and gender non-conforming students’ opportunity to learn, and negatively impacts their health and well-being. Thankfully, Washington state has not. Students across our state continue to have the right to be treated equally and with dignity when attending school. We have a long history of strong support for civil rights for all in Washington. I will fight to ensure these rights are upheld in the face of continued vicious and dangerous attacks.”
